De Ateliers is an international institute for talent development of young visual artists, founded in 1963 by artists, for artists. De Ateliers offers some twenty young and beginning artists a studio for two years in a professional working environment, and the intense mentorship of prominent colleagues. De Ateliers offers opportunities to young artists to develop their talents on the highest possible level. De Ateliers adheres to the notion that the professional advance of beginning artists benefits most from practice. During the two year residency at De Ateliers, individual studio practice, experiment, research, reflection, exchange and discussion are central. Participants of De Ateliers have their own private studio, where they can work 24/7. Every week on Tuesdays, they engage in individual studio discussions with tutor artists and art professionals.
Since 1992, De Ateliers is housed in Amsterdam, at the Stadhouderskade. The monumental building was designed in 1875 by architect Bastiaan de Greeff. It is the oldest and most beautiful art school building in the Netherlands, located close to the Rijksmuseum, Stedelijk Museum and Van Gogh Museum. In the fifties, an extension to the building was designed by Gerrit Rietveld.
