Gary Meyer Workshop this Weekend at 3 Kicks Studio~!!

Our friend, Charles Hu at 3 Kicks Studio is running a 2 day painting workshop this weekend with Gary Meyer. Gary is one of my favorite instructor at Art Center and he is well known for his amazing gouache demos of city scenes, figures and landscapes without using any reference. Gary's past projects include "Star Wars", "The Thing" and many other beautiful advertisement & aviation illustrations.

Gary is great at teaching by explaining how things work visually so you can paint the object from memory. I would strongly recommend Gary's class for anyone who wants to learn how to paint. This is a rare chance to learn from one of Art Center's legend.

For more of Gary's artwork, you can visit his site at:

Enjoy your visit~!!
