Painting the Costumed Figure Summer Class at Atelier Dojo

The objective of this course is to examine the drape and fall of fabric hanging from the human form. We will study fabric painting from both the live models and from costume still life. The class is designed to develop manual skills in drawing and painting and increase one’s understanding of quickly rendering an image. We will focus on defining line, form, weight, value, structure, color mixing and composition. We will discuss aesthetic sensibilities and move towards setting a tone or mood within a painting. The course will familiarize students with various painting tools and methods to create depth, light, and balance within the painted form. Students are welcome to work in either oil or acrylic paints. Not both.
