Train Your Eye

Observation is the foundation of realist art.
With a curriculum dedicated to the classical skills that underlie realist drawing and painting, Atelier Dojo classes are led by nationally recognized artists in an intimate and welcoming environment.

Sharpen Your Skills

Paint like a rock star, or next to one.
While classes are essential to learn technique, it is the daily dedication to the craft that hones your skill and brings about mastery. Students of all levels are encouraged to attend weekly open studio sessions to practice new skills. With a membership that includes established and recognized painters, you'll never know who might be working next to you.

Find Your Voice

Master the visual language.
Unlike most contemporary ateliers, Dojo is not about teaching a standard style. Our goal is to give students the tools they need to take their own work to the next level. The workshop series will feature world-renowned artists who bring their distinctive visions to the realm of realist art.
