The Concordia University School atelier art curriculum offers your child rich opportunities for visual learning through a full range of art media: drawing, painting, sculpture, ceramics, printmaking and crafts.

Our atelier is a collaborative venture with the Concordia University Wisconsin, administered and maintained by faculty and education students of the university. As such, your student works closely with university professors and receives highly personalized time and attention from pre-service educators who have your child's best interests in mind.
