“Every artist has their own unique style and perspective in drawing. My role is to open the door to your own genius as an artist.” Jin An Wong

Join this 6-week course introduction to drawing the human form where you will learn to construct the human figure from the skeleton, body proportions, and live models. Learn how bones come to the surface, how muscles group together, how to create shapes & change shapes, and how to design & redesign anatomy.

This course is jam-packed with instruction, including lecture, demos, & drawing time. This is a rare opportunity to bring stability and solidity to your figure drawings. This class is intended for artists of all levels.

Jin An Wong has worked in the Hollywood Animation Industry for the past 3 decades, and is an expert in drawing & animating the human figure, animals, fictional creatures, and cartoon characters. His work ranged from animating “Tarna” in the first “Heavy Metal” Feature, to designing & directing “Dora, the Explorer” for Nickelodeon Cartoons. He has taught fine arts at the California College of the Arts, Academy of Art University, Expression College of Digital Media and many other art institutions. He received an Emmy for his animated short film “Bean Sprouts” and a Clio for the TV commercial “Sunkist Orange”.

I would like to thank Arne Jin An Wong for the many times I have had the opportunity to attend his life drawing workshop in Los Angeles. I’ve known Arne since high school in San Francisco. He has always been a role model for creative types, even back then when he was a young aspiring animator while other kids were still deciding what they wanted to be when they grew up.
As I chose graphic design as my career path, creating digital artwork for the entertainment industry, I never wanted to ignore the joy of feeling charcoal gliding across a pad of newsprint paper, so I have continued to draw whenever possible. Arne has a vast knowledge of all things art through years of experience in animation, painting and drawing. It is a blessing to us all that he is willing to share his knowledge and passion with others. In my life, there is nothing more soul-satisfying than art.
