We are a LA based private art school in the center of Pasadena. Our goal is to create a generous learning environment and deliver quality classes taught by some of the top professionals in the film & game industry.
This term, we have some great classes lined up starting with Analytical Figure Drawing & Intro to Character Design taught by Kevin Chen. Kevin is a freelance character designer that worked on many game projects such as Medal of Honor, Call of Duty, Aion, Guild Wars, and film projects like AVP and the upcoming animation film "9" from Tim Burton Productions. You can find samples of his teaching here.
We also have Anthony Francisco, teaching Creature Design for Games/Films. Anthony came from the background of film creature shops and have worked as a concept artist on projects such as Men in Black 2, AI, Chronicles of Riddick, The Passion, and more.
On top of that, we have two great, guest workshops with Charlie Wen (Visual Development Director of God of War 1 & 2) and Khang Le (Art Director of Project Offset) that is not to be missed to learn from their inspiring works.
The registration is based on a first come first serve system and the space is limited. So, call or e-mail in ahead to reserve your spot if you are interested to attend.
If you know any friends who might be interested, please pass the link along. Thanks!!
We will have the brochures ready to send out soon. So just e-mail us your address to receive a copy in the mail.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us through e-mail or phone.
(I will keep you updated too if we decide to open up any teen figure/painting classes.)
If you are interested, just send me some portfolio samples of your work. A good 5~6 samples of your best work will be enough. I will be looking for some sample of people, perspective, and whatever you like to draw to show your interest.
Hope this will help

Yeah, Anthony is one of my favorite designers too. We have been working together for the past 2~3 years and almost all of our projects are still under NDA, that's why he doesn't have a lot to post up yet. (sigh~)
I will try to post up more of his artworks here soon, he has a lot of new cool stuff. I just need to check with him to see what we are able to post. Stay tuned for more new images~!!
I don't think I'll be having the opportunity to reach the course at my current age and residence , though , I'd like to ask , is it a one time course , or would you be teaching it again in..Lets say , 2009 ?
All the ten week courses will continue to run as long as there are enough students
The workshop will be limited to the guest instructors' availability. A lot of our instructors are good friends and local artist, so if they are not too busy working, there is a good chance that they will be back again in the near future.
If there are enough demands for a high school figure drawing class or workshop, I would consider opening one up in the future at a lower price. So, let me know if anyone is interested.
In the meantime, you can still sign up for Charlie's or Khang's workshops without any age restrictions. The workshop does not contain any nude models and does not require everyone to be at a similar skill level. It will be a good way for you to see how the professionals work and ask them how they got there. It will help you to get a better understanding of the profession and to better plan your education toward it.
