    Anatomy Courses at LAAFA

    Anatomy is important to know when drawing, painting or sculpting the figure. It is extremely frustrating not knowing what the bumps and lumps are when trying to represent the model. And after one learns the basics, they can emphasize or simplify the anatomy according to their preference.

    Rey Bustos is a one-of-a-kind teacher and an anatomy enthusiast. As he lectures, he draws each body part from different angles, so you have a better sense of how the muscles wrap around the body flexing and extending the limbs. I would highly recommend this class for any aspiring representational artist.


    #3003 - 2D Anatomy Drawing
    (Starts July 7th - 10wks)


    Instructor: Rey Bustos

    Teen Class at LAAFA

    #6009 - Long Pose Head Drawing & Painting [Teen Program]
    (Starts July 18th - 8wks)$295


    Instructor: Alex Douziech
    Sunday, 1:30pm-4:30pm


    3-Year Entertainment Art Program, 18-Month Entertainment Track & Foundational Tracks

    This class will focus on the structure of the head, how light hits form, how to simplify values, and color theory through a limited palette. We will be working from one live model the whole time. My hope is to introduce the students to the basic fundamentals of painting the head. At the end of the class, the students should be able to have a finished head study that they can feel proud of.

    Animal Anatomy Workshop and Animal Drawing Class at LAAFA

    Animal Anatomy Workshop and Animal Drawing Class at LAAFA

    #7100 – Marshall Vandruff 3-Day Animal Anatomy Workshop
    Fri-Sun, Aug. 13-15, 2010, 10am-5pm


    3-Year Entertainment Art Program, 18-Month Entertainment Track & Foundational Tracks

    3-Year Entertainment Art Program, 18-Month Entertainment Track & Foundational Tracks

    This crash-course will teach you the classic approach to draftsmanship and animal anatomy. If you’ve ever wondered how drawing masters can depict a horse leaping or a bear dancing without copying photographs, these three days of intense instruction will take you through the process step-by-step. You will learn how to confidently draw animals from imagination as well as to interpret what you see when drawing from real animals. Those mysterious bumps on a lion’s limbs will make sense when you know the underlying structure. Marshall will compare various types of four-legged animals with humans, always with an emphasis on how to master “form in space” so they look realistic, alive, and authoritative.

    Quotes from Former Students:

    “You are one of the most engaging, informed instructors I've ever experienced. I learned volumes from the Animal Anatomy course. With joy and fond appreciation....”
    —Ed Eyth, Former Senior Character Designer, Henson Studios

    "I had the benefit of discovering Marshall Vandruff's teaching materials many years ago when I first set out to learn how to draw animals and fantasy creatures. Marshall was the first artist to really get me to think about drawing in three dimensions and I still refer to his work to this day! Marshall's teaching style is so wonderfully accessible in its direct and clear approach to drawing realistic animals by thinking around the forms and seeing them as dimensional objects on the page. He manages to break down complex ideas and shapes into easy to understand and easy to reproduce forms that have stuck with me for years and continue to guide my hand to this day."
    - Scott Spencer, Character Designer, The Weta Workshop

    Thursday, 7pm-10pm


    3-Year Entertainment Art Program, 18-Month Entertainment Track & Foundational Tracks

    The focus of this course will be on digital life drawing and painting using Adobe Photoshop and other digital techniques. The class also explores working with brushes and digital drawing tablets (such as those from Wacom) with a live model in the room to replicate through drawing and painting the human figure as would be done in a studio environment.

    Drawing Storyboards/Graphic Novels with Light (Starts Aug. 14th - 5wks)
    Instructor: Marcos Mateu

    3-Year Entertainment Art Program, 18-Month Entertainment Track & Foundational Tracks

    Light is the element that will dramatically influence a set and the characters within. Depending on the use we make of it the perception of the image will change in order to fit the storytelling moment. In this course we will observe and ink on paper sets under different lighting conditions, in convincing and practical ways, to then apply these techniques to specific panels that will deliver the desired message to an audience.There will also be slide show, analysis and discussion of artwork examples.

    Entertainment Composition (Starts Aug. 21st - 5wks)
    Instructor: Bryan Norton
    Saturday, 2pm-5pm


    3-Year Entertainment Art Program, 18-Month Entertainment Track & Foundational Tracks

    The focus of this course is to investigate different methods of sketching and visual concept development for entertainment projects while stressing creative thinking, drawing from the imagination, and composition. Using fundamental drawing and design principles students will explore in class and at home using ink pens, pencils, markers/and or watercolors to fully realize their ideas through various exercises and small design projects including character design, environments, props and/or vehicles. In addition to interactive lectures, instruction includes demos and technical information on materials, methods, and uses of various sketching techniques and styles as they apply to entertainment design. My goal is to give students a hands-on overview of entertainment design sketching and composition that is content rich in a very interactive and open setting that allows students to participate and express their creativity using the knowledge they gain from this course. Should Have Prior Knowledge Of: Basic perspective drawing, previous figure drawing/quick sketch.

Weekly lectures and demonstrations will cover topics such as staging and composition, 1, 2, 3 and 5 point perspective, scaling characters, visual story telling, natural and artificial lighting, thumbnails and rough sketching, final line and line quality and tonal drawings. Students will be expected to work within the classroom as well as manage homework assignments.

    Animal Anatomy with Marshall Vandruff's Workshop was a huge success

    Marshall Vandruff taught a wonderful workshop at LAAFA! Marshall Vandruff is a world class instructor and an expert in anatomy and composition. Any artist would greatly benifit from taking his workshops.

    Free Head Drawing Class Sept 18th!

    3-Year Entertainment Art Program, 18-Month Entertainment Track & Foundational Tracks

    Free Head Drawing Class with Alex Douziech
    Saturday, September 18th 10am to 1pm (before our Open House)


    This Free Instructed Class is for people who are new to LAAFA, and have never studied with us before (one free class per person). The free drawing class will encourage you to see with your eyes and to draw with your hand. Instruction will be given in simple shading, lighting, core shadows, and learning to draw through an object. This is an excellent opportunity for students with little to no formal drawing training at all. Learning to translate what you see to paper is an exercise that will challenge you in new ways, keeping your brain and your imagination piqued. Come give it a try!

    Bring your 18"x24" pad of newsprint, some charcoal, a graphite pencil, a kneaded eraser, your right brain, and enjoy a class on the house. Our hope is that you realize how important art can be in your life, for without it we merely exist.

    More experienced artists can also benefit from one of these classes. Bring along your work, and during the class, our instructor will take some one-on-one time with you to give you a free portfolio review. Find out where you are with your skill level, and where you can go!


    If you would like to sign up for this class, call 818.708.9232 or email contactus@laafa.org

    Sketching from Life(Starts Oct. 5th)
    Instructor: Nathan Fowkes Tuesday, 7pm-10pm


    3-Year Entertainment Art Program, 18-Month Entertainment Track & Foundational Tracks

    http://www.laafa.org/sessions/classe...=3217&cat_id=1

    Portrait Drawing (5wks) & Painting (5wks)(Starts Oct. 6th)
    Instructor: Eric Pedersen Wednesday, 7pm-10pm


    3-Year Entertainment Art Program, 18-Month Entertainment Track & Foundational Tracks

    This advanced course is designed to teach the student more complex ideas about composition. The student will learn a process and multiple techniques for finishing a long pose drawing and painting. Within two five-week poses, the student will begin to understand basic ideas of organizing the elements of design to create a portrait with lasting effect.

    http://www.laafa.org/sessions/classe...=3222&cat_id=2

    Still Life Painting(Starts Oct. 14th)
    Instructor: Ignat Ignatov Thursday, 7pm-10pm


    3-Year Entertainment Art Program, 18-Month Entertainment Track & Foundational Tracks

    This course will consist of painting demonstrations and lectures covering the important elements of painting the Still Life, such as value, color and edges, as well as composition and design. You will be painting a Still Life in a 2-week set-up and will receive individual instruction and critiques. The studio will have several Still Life stations and you will rotate and paint a different Still Life every 2 weeks.

    http://www.laafa.org/sessions/classe...=3225&cat_id=2

    Long Pose Figure Sculpture(Starts Oct. 6th)
    Instructor: David Simon Wednesday, 6pm-10pm


    3-Year Entertainment Art Program, 18-Month Entertainment Track & Foundational Tracks

    This class will focus on teaching the student to accurately represent the complexities of the human form. The use of proportional systems to funnel observation into an accurate sculptural representation of the figure will be introduced. This class will stress the synthesis of anatomical knowledge and observation. Students will learn how to correctly set up an armature and will be instructed in the proper use of modeling tools. There will be one pose for the duration of the course, and students may choose to work at either a 30” or 36” scale. Oil-based clay will be used.

    http://www.laafa.org/sessions/classe...=3221&cat_id=3

    Approaches to Illustration(Starts Oct. 4th)
    Instructor: Douglas Kirk Monday, 7pm-10pm


    3-Year Entertainment Art Program, 18-Month Entertainment Track & Foundational Tracks

    The focus of this course will be on exploring the field of illustration through practical work which will seek to develop the technical and creative facility required to work in the illustration field. Understanding of the history of illustration, current technical means and contemporary trends in traditional as well as new media will be covered. The role of the illustrator in published media, and therefore the purpose of illustration will be engaged. Access to a computer and appropriate software used by illustrators will be helpful but is not essential for undertaking this course where traditional media still hold an important place. Primary stress will be placed on the student developing their own creative approaches through practical work.

    http://www.laafa.org/sessions/classe...=3214&cat_id=4

    Long Pose Head Painting (Teen Class)(Starts Oct. 10th)
    Instructor: Alexandria Douziech Sunday, 1:30pm-4:30pm


    3-Year Entertainment Art Program, 18-Month Entertainment Track & Foundational Tracks

    This class will focus on the structure of the head, how light hits form, how to simplify values, and color theory through a limited palette. We will be working from one live model the whole time. My hope is to introduce the students to the basic fundamentals of painting the head.

    http://www.laafa.org/sessions/classe...=3253&cat_id=2


    Digital Character Design (using a Live Model & Photoshop)(Starts Oct. 7th)
