Rey has been teaching since 1990 and is now considered one of the preeminent artistic anatomy teachers in the country. He is known for his lively and passionate lectures and his enthusiasm is very evident and contagious. These classes are very informative, hands-on and will benefit all types of artists.
We are extremely honored to be included as one of American Artist's 10 Top Art Schools in the world. We would like to take this opportunity and thank our wonderful instructors and models for their continued dedication to the school throughout the years. Most of all, we would like to thank our students for their support. We could not have achieved this honor without you! We look forward to another amazing year with our LAAFA Community.

Hi Darkstar, I'm a current student at the school. For the first two years both fine art and entertainment art have the same curriculum... drawing and painting. Then the third year is different; entertainment art students have a portfolio/design year and the fine art students have gallery visits and mentorships.
Figure construction class works from the model but homework and assignments are without the model.
is your constructive anatomy have improved by drawing with the model? and if yes do you have some sort of comparaison to show? Because the laafa site dont show a lot of pictre of before and after improvement or student work.
