Atwood Atelier

Atwood Atelier – Philip Salamone

“I was born in Madison and raised in central Wisconsin.  I graduated from the University of Wisconsin – Madison in Fine Arts and later moved to New York to study at the Grand Central Atelier.  After completing the three year program, in addition to study at the Art Students League, I returned to Madison to paint and to teach.  In an effort to build a community, to learn from other artists, and to routinely practice painting from the figure, I rented a studio and started offering classes, workshops, and open studios.  I now teach at both the University of Wisconsin – Madison and also at my school, the Atwood Atelier.”
