Drawing and Painting High End Caricatures at Schoolism

It's that time again! Another semester of my caricature class at Schoolism is nearing it's end, and the next is about to start. Click here to find out more about how to sign up for my class. I'm so proud of the hard work my last semester has produced and when they finish their final assignments I'll post them here to share with all of you. If you're wondering what the class is like, you can read student testimonials on the Schoolism site. If you have any questions please feel free to email me and I'll get back to you as soon as I can. This class is not only a class on caricature, but also a class on drawing as well as painting. We also cover anatomy, how to capture a person's character, building confidence and overall, how to create professional and original art work.

My next class starts November 12th 2010, there are only a few openings, this semester is selling out fast.

Here are two testimonials of past students of mine.

Jason Seiler's class The Art of Caricature is fantastic. I was apprehensive going
in because I really haven't taken an art course since Jr. High. My art background
is based in photography and 3d. Jason's teaching style makes it easy to start from
scratch and build from there. There also were students in the class that obviously
were pros or close to it. I think they would agree their work improved over the
course. It's great to have the ability to learn from an entire class even though it
can be treated as a one on one experience as well. The blog is a great way to
participate and see how others work is coming along. Most of all though it's
great to see the world through Jason's eyes. He makes you see how true the
statement he often uses really is. "It's funny because it's true".
--Lee Fraser

This course has without doubt helped me greatly improve my work, both in
terms of technical ability and in terms of motivation and dedication.
Jason packs the lessons with lots of great techniques, tips and advice
that I'm sure will be invaluable to everyone taking the course. He also
provides fantastic feedback and constructive criticism all the way
through. Great teacher, great course!
