Dynamic Figure Drawing Workshop by Glenn Vilppu

Glenn Vilppu Master


Glenn Vilppu

Animator Glenn Vilppu (Click for Photos & Video) has worked for Walt Disney, Warner Bros and DreamWorks Animation and is noted for bridging the gap between traditional classical constructive drawing, computers and animation. He is much sought after as a lecturer on classical drawing.

“This course covers the use of materials as well as essential skills needed as   a prelude to Figure Drawing which Glenn learned at the beginning   of his artistic training. He finds that this basic skill set is often missing in the training of artists today. The focus is as much on training the eye as the hand, with development of visual skills as well as how to study independently. Basic concepts in drawing and their application are demonstrated and incorporated into the weekly assignments, using the  same basic materials that will be needed for the Figure Drawing courses. These concepts are applicable to any field of artistic endeavor.    by Glenn Vilppu
