The New York City Atelier is an Inspiration of Master Artist Michael R. Danielson.

Atelier is the French word for “workshop”, and in English is used principally for the studio of an artist in the fine arts or design, where a principal master and a number of assistants, students and apprentices worked together producing brilliant pieces that went out in the master’s name.
