In order to provide support for artists interested in taking advantage of Manifest Drawing Center's rich programming for extended development, we are offering newly updated Atelier Study Pass options which enable participants to attend any and all Drawing Center programs for no additional charge for the period selected at time of enrollment (12, 6, or 3 months). This amounts to as much as a 75% discount on a full year of programming starting from the first day attended using the pass. The cost of the Atelier Study Pass is $4,000 for a full year, $2,500 for six months, or $1,500 for three months, paid in advance.
The value of the full-year Study Pass credit is estimated to be $16,000* and may be applied to any program offered at the Manifest Drawing Center during the one-year period beginning on the first day used. The value of the Short-Study passes corresponds to the portion of a year each covers.
*Study Pass includes all programming, from weekly Open Sessions to routine classes and workshops, to darkroom sessions and special visiting artist workshops to our weekly Drawing As Mindfulness sessions. This opportunity, by its very nature, will expose the participant to the intensive practice of ongoing studio work, supported by the mentoring and instruction by some of the region's best teaching artists on an ongoing basis in our new Studio Seminar offering..
The Atelier Study Pass does not provide a specific curriculum, but rather enables the holder to devise their own curriculum by choosing from among the ongoing offerings at Manifest.
As this is an exciting program that requires a serious commitment both in terms of time and cost, questions and discussion are welcome and encouraged. Questions can be emailed to Adam Mysock, Education and Studio Program Manager, at Mysock@manifestdrawingcenter.org.
WHO SHOULD CHOOSE THE STUDY PASS?
The Atelier Study Pass is appropriate for anyone wanting to engage in serious ongoing visual arts practice with instruction, as well as independent study supported by Manifest's vibrant offerings, unique and vibrant new facility, and a regular peer group which includes working artists, college professors, current students, art and design professionals, and others aspiring to perfect their art and creativity.
An Atelier Study Pass student could be someone wanting to get a leg up on their skill before entering college in order to obtain scholarships, or acceptance into a competitive program, or someone recently graduated but wanting to cement their development as a bridge between academia and professional practice, or someone whose life took a different path but who now wants to bring it back to serious creative pursuits, or someone who wants to notch up their work's consistency and strength in order to pursue exhibition opportunities and further critical success. The nature of the self-determined curriculum is such that the Atelier Study Pass serves a wide audience seeking routine and rigor in a visual art practice. Manifest's nonprofit mission is to support such endeavors, and the Pass is but one way we are expanding our service to artists.
The Short-Study Pass is a new option we are providing for those who, for reasons of work, travel, or other obligations, cannot commit to a full year of intense creative engagement.
The Atelier Study Pass can begin any time up to a month after registration and tuition payment are complete.
