YouTube Video: Acrylic Painting Demo--Artist's Mannequin

In this 21 minute video, I demonstrate how to paint an artist's mannequin in acrylic. Emphasis is on mixing, establishing, and applying a range of values, especially the creation of highlights and shadows from tints and shades in order to create the illusion of a monochromatic 3-D form. I hope you'll find the tone conversational but informative.

This demo or tutorial is very specific to a challenge I had given my Art Foundations students, but my intention is that you find it helpful for teaching your students to paint any cylindrical form.

  3. In a way, for an art-lover like myself, decorating our home is quite easy. I just please myself mostly, with my poor husband going along with most of my choices. I am always collecting beautiful things, like handicraft decorative pieces, little sculptures and hangings.
    And I simply hang lovely paintings in all our rooms. Not all are originals of course, as who can afford many of those.
    I order many prints on canvas from Wahooart who have a vast collection of images from Western art, that you can choose to make economically-priced prints like this Interior in Aubergines, by Henri Matisse, from there.
    I can choose the frames as well and my orders are delivered quickly to my home.

  4. I love the video and the skill sets taught for this video piece. You mention that it is part of a specific "challenge" and I noticed that many of your lesson begin with a challenge.

    For this project, what challenge did the students begin with?

  5. Hi Mr. Hreha~
    You ask a good question...I wish I had the challenge posted here on my blog, but I'm afraid I have sorely neglected this blog over the last couple of years due to other priorities. My current students are working on this challenge right now, so maybe I will make time to post the challenge/unit and end results. I can at least post finished pieces from last year which were terrific. Last year's group was challenged to express a social issue through a linear patter of tape stenciling on mat board (that they washed over in the complementary color of the board to neutralize), 3 painted mannequins (2 in one of the complementary colors and 1 in the other) or parts of mannequins, and small hand-written text--not labels or captions. I called it "Take a Stand." This year's students just finished a social issues piece, so they are dealing more ambiguously with emotion or psychological states. They've just finished their thumbnails and some have almost completed their tape stenciling. Stay tuned! And feel free to email me directly with questions at betsy.dijulio@vbschools.com. I can also attach a couple of images from last year. Cheers!
