Caeruil Atelier is a MHO founded in Imaerasta of 5118. The Atelier is a fine arts organization based out of Ta'Illistim in the Elven Nations.


Mission

The Atelier aims to promote and enable the creative process of our members and provide public exposure to fine arts within Elanthia. Our focus lies in the higher visual arts realm, with media such as painting, drawing, sculpture, architectural splendor, and tapestry; we are not a fashion or theatrical house. Caeruil Atelier shall provide a supportive, yet critical community for artists to create and discuss their work, obtain feedback, and tune their technique through collective learning and mentorships between member artists. The Atelier shall also work to foster interest in the arts and improve visual literacy among the general population through public art classes, critical symposia on the aesthetics of art, gallery tours, and more.


IC/OOC note: Caeruil Atelier MHO is focused on in-game, in-character role play and artistry. We are not a platform for real-world or digital character portraits.

Membership

Membership is based on expressed interest in the arts with the desire to improve ones' skill and promote the greater arts community. Members of Caeruil Atelier shall be responsible for coordinating both public and private activities based on demand and interest, with an expectation that all members contribute to at least one event per year, whether it be public or private.

Events Past and Present

Upcoming

07/15/2021, 9:30-10:30pm. Introduction to Theatrical Mask Painting via Revelia Carnivale
Description: Students will be given a plain mask to work from (obtained from the Solhaven shop) and then choose a dramatic facial expression or creature to model it after from a predetermined list.  Using the item plus an assortment of paint and adornments, they will produce masks suitable for a theatrical production under instruction from Caeruil Atelier master artists. In practice: Students employ the ACT command to simulate the creation of the mask they chose or were assigned.  The final display is an act where they "show" a description of the object to the class.  Describing the item without simply saying the word, so to speak.  A critique or class discussion about the form may then be provided, and students may be encouraged guess what sentiment/creature the mask is intended to represent.
12/11/2021, 3-4pm. Location TBD. Ice Sculpting.
