Fool Proof Cast Drawing with Steve Cefalo

It is commonly assumed that drawing technique is mastered by those with “natural talent,” by developing very good hand-eye coordination, or maybe by buying just the right art supplies. This class dispels these myths and shows you that nearly everyone can draw, and no special abilities are required. Basic drawing skills require very little natural ability or creativity, and if you have the hand-eye coordination to operate a vehicle, then you probably have the coordination that is required. The confidence-building skills you will learn in this course may be applied to your own projects of any subject and any medium. This class will provide you the basic concepts, and a few exercises to practice them with. The passion and creativity is up to you, and the sky is the limit!

Alla Prima Oil Painting with Tony Pro

In this pre-recorded 3-hour class, Tony shows his technique of “alla prima” oil painting in all types of subject matter from Figure, Portrait and Still life.

Classes start with basics of oil painting from materials and limited palette and will progress on to extended palettes with more complex subject matter.

About Tony Pro

Pro received his Bachelor of Arts degree in Graphic Design from California State University, Northridge and at the same time attended California Art Institute where he studied with famed illustrator, Glen Orbik.

Pro’s influences are the likes of John Singer Sargent, Anders Zorn, Joaquin Sorolla and Philip Alexius de Laszlo. The French Naturalist artists like Emille Friant, Dagnan Bouveret and Jules-Bastien Lepage also play a large influence in Pro’s style of painting.

In 2005, Pro was awarded the highly coveted Best of Show award at the 14th Annual Oil Painters of America Show, given by juror, Daniel Gerhartz. That year Pro, also, was one of the TOP 10 finalists of the Portrait Society of America Show in Washington D.C. Also that year, Pro’s painting “Mothers Love” was featured on the cover of Southwest Art Magazine, as well as a feature article.

In 2014, Pro won First Place at the Portrait Society of America International Competition.

Pro is a Signature Member of the California Art Club.
