Organized Content

Through our diverse course library, you can pick and choose what you want to learn. The bulk of our course library focuses on the figure and portrait drawing. We also offer up diverse course subjects like composition and perspective.


Feedback On Your Work

Our site is much more than a bunch of video tutorials. We’ve set up our member area to focus on helping you improve weekly. We welcome you to post your art to our Critique Gallery for informative, encouraging feedback.

Your Questions Answered

Learn how to stay on target through our weekly podcast. We will answer your art-related questions keeping you informed, inspired, and motivated. We’ve been in the art business since 1990, yes we will answer your business-related questions too.

Work From Great Reference

In our member’s area, you will gain access to countless downloadable PDF’s that offer you high-quality photo reference. You will also gain access to our Online Pose videos helping to keep you sharp through timed gesture poses.

It's About You

The majority of educational videos that you find online do not focus on cultivating you as an individual artist. We have courses that will help you to gain clarity on your process, style and subject matter. We want to help you create a finished body of work. 

Staying On Target

We all know it’s very easy to get overwhelmed with all of the art courses and books available today. All of this information can be paralyzing. Our experience teaching both online and in the classroom will help you stay on target with your learning progress.

“A Valuable Resource”

“Matt – I’d like to thank you for this site. It’s an invaluable resource for people like me – adults who work full-time and are unable to take traditional classes, but still, truly want to learn the proper way to draw the human figure. Being able to log in whenever I have time and work at my own pace is great, and the feedback you provide is the icing on the cake.”
