John English Demo Online!

John English Landscape Painting is now online, listed under Demos and John English.

John really gets into his thought process in this video. After you watch this vid a couple of times,
you will want to have it playing in the background as you work so you can just listen to the
words and ideas.

PODS for TAD are being populated.

As time goes forward, the TAD Kick Off is growing near. June 17th is the Studio Kick Off of the
first TAD semester. Students from all around the country will converge in Kansas City for a three
week studio session. After that, some people stay in KC, and others will continue to Austin or
Richmond to start living the studio experience in their respective PODs. Studying online in the
Elluminate Educational Environment as well as taking part in a POD studio is the “hybrid” art
education experience that John English and Jason Manley have envisioned.

Additional Models Being Processed for VLP Figure Drawing.

We are continually working in the background to photograph models for Figure Drawing. Keep
posting those images, and keep drawing and THINKING! It never hurts to go back and watch
Mark’s Figure Drawing Demos!
