    Official Atelier Stockholm thread

    Hello ca.org!

    Atelier Stockholm - The Swedish Academy of Realist Art (SARA) is a fine Art school dedicated to traditional, realistic drawing and painting. The school uses long-established techniques from the Renaissance, 18th and 19th-century European and Russian academies, as well as contemporary methods to teach its students. Through this demanding training program, students acquire a range of skills that enable them to create personal, contemporary works of art displaying the same level of expertise and craftsmanship that meet the highest standards set centuries ago.

    Many of our students are interested in concept art and illustration as well as traditional fine art. Whilst the education is focused on teaching people to draw and paint realistically using traditional mediums, the methods used translate directly into digital mediums, and to fields other than fine art. We also bring in guest lecturers from the concept art and illustration industries to the school.

    Atelier Stockholm is located in Stockholm, Bergshamra.

    We plan to update this thread periodically with students work and information about the school. Check out our website, blog and social network outlets in the signature to get further updates about the school.

    If you have any questions about Atelier Stockholm, feel free to ask them here and we will answer them as soon as possible.


    Here are some photos of students work and photos from around the school:

    This place kicks ass and deserves more attention than it currently gets online! If you're even vaguely local or within the EU I'd definitely recommend considering this place, I moved from the UK and it was relatively painless.

    Miles - Thanks! We are really glad to have you here.

    Sushy - Yup, that is oil on canvas, still-lifes like that are usually part of the 3rd year curriculum. We actually have a student from the Netherlands at the school! About 40% of our students are from countries other than Sweden. It is quite easy to move within the EU, and we help students as much as possible to get settled in.

    Do you hold any open day events (öppet hus) for people who are interested and would like to know more about what it means to study at SA?

    I've been at the school for more than 4 months now and its just getting better and better.
    Being someone who hasn't really had any proper art-training before it was really hard to know which kind of school that was right for me, and the art I wish to create.

    However, judging by the body of work this school produces I didn't really have a hard time deciding whether or not to apply.

    Overall great school and environment to thrive in - Highly recommended!

    I'm currently 17 and from the UK, I'm extremely interested in studying here. I have a few questions though, could I pay my tuition with a student loan from the UK? I'm not sure how it works. Also, I fear that I won't be able to afford the living costs of Stockholm. I would really love to attend but money poses as a problem. Do you have any advice for me?

    Pedramfh - Thanks Pedram! It's great to have you at the school

    mahons - We have a lot of students from the UK actually, and you can pay the tuition with student loans from there. You can live quite cheaply if you share an apartment with someone else, many of our students do that. We try to help applicants as much as possible to find places to live.

    I'm interested in the school but I'm not that keen on doing cast studies but rather go directly to painting. As I've already done alot of croquis and some basic painting. Is that possible?

    And I also wonder why students cant start painting and do figuredrawing while they do cast drawing?

    I'd appreciate any answer.

    Hej svejs.

    The Atelier Stockholm account here seemed to have gotten caught in the spam filter, and can no longer make any posts. Does anyone know how to fix that?

    In the mean time, I will answer any questions on this account. I have also started a similar thread on : http://tldr.me/87mi2k

    mahons - I tried mailing you earlier, I am not sure if it got through though. We have a lot of students from the UK actually! you can pay the tuition with student loans from the UK . It is possible to live fairly cheaply if you share an apartment with someone else, a lot of our students do that. We also help new students find apartments.

    Magnus - That is usually not possible unless you can show that you have done parts of a similar course elsewhere. The whole education is structured so that the teachers can insure that you learn every step properly. Each step of the education makes it that much easier to learn the next one.

    The reason students can't jump directly into painting is that it's a very tricky medium which requires a lot of finesse, it can be difficult to jump into without a good base of knowledge. The cast studies gives students the opportunity to focus on learning drawing and handling values, a great foundation which they later can expand upon. It may sound like a tedious exercise but in the right environment and with a good teacher it is an extremely useful lesson.

    Students doing cast studies do figure drawings as well, usually split up before and after lunch.

    I hope that answered your questions
