Online “Drawing the Portrait in Charcoal” course by Nathan Fowkes

We are thrilled to announce the release of our latest online course with Nathan Fowkes, “Drawing the Portrait in Charcoal”, now open for registration, starting January 21, 2013.  Space is limited!

This online course is a serious exploration of drawing the portrait from life in charcoal. Over the course of the class, Nathan will provide each student with the necessary understanding and experience to draw the human head with authority.  Watch the preview video and learn more here.

 

Online “3D Anatomy/Ecorché” course by Rey Bustos

A fabulous online course, Rey Bustos’ “3D Anatomy/Ecorché” starting January 28, 2013 is also open for registration for critique and self-study courses. Space is limited!

If you are a fan of Rey Bustos, you must experience him in a classroom setting with students present.  The interaction between Rey and his students adds another dimension to his teaching since the questions posed by the students and the energy of the classroom environment lead Rey to veer off to lecture on topics that wouldn’t normally be covered if he was lecturing to a camera.  Watch the preview video and learn more here.
