Atelier Dojo is a professional art academy and studio in East Austin’s Canopy Arts Complex. The studio features classes, workshops, open studios and memberships for artists looking to refine their skills. The Dojo has a talented and diverse group of instructors who teach on a rotating basis. The school believes that the foundation of realist art is the trained eye for observation. Classes are led by artists who are nationally recognized in their field and teach a curriculum based around the classical skills integral to realist drawing and painting. Students are also encouraged to attend open studios where they can hone their newfound skills alongside students of all levels. Atelier Dojo is a haven for all artists, not just those who are enrolled in current classes.
The academy was founded by a collective of four women who all had unique journeys with one thing in common through it all, painting. From the executive boardroom at Microsoft and Dreamworks to Ph.Ds and self-taught art careers turned academic, these four women all found their paths lead to the world of fine art and refined skill.
