Our Facebook Group and other resources!

Posted by Lisa Benson on

Heya! We have a few different resources to share with you today!


Online Courses

First, we have been connecting more with all of you on Instagram recently, and we noticed some of our followers are offering online art courses right now. Some are paid and others are free! Since many of us are currently making art at home, we thought we'd share a few.*

Kristy Gordon

Elizabeth Zanzinger


Studio Zanaganda is currently online and Elizabeth is working hard to keep you grounded and focused on developing your work during this time! Each week Elizabeth is posting a 20-25 minutes video with ideas, demos, and helpful suggestions while you’re at stuck home with a mountain of art supplies. There are three options of engagement for students & artists to choose from. Hope to see you in class!


Jennifer Balkan


In this premium art instruction video, Jennifer enthusiastically shows you how to mix any color, any value, and any temperature with the most basic of limited color palettes. Follow Jennifer’s lead and mix all the colors you can imagine with her palette made up of just four colors — yes, you read that right … just four colors!


Scott Waddell


Scott was born and raised in Central Florida. He received his BFA from Florida State University, studied at the Florence Academy of Art and the Waterstreet Atelier in NYC. In 2006 Scott moved with his wife to New England where they now reside in Rhode Island with their two kids and pets. Scott's work has been featured in numerous exhibitions and galleries including: Cavalier Galleries, Meredith Long and Co. and Joshua Liner Gallery. His work has also appeared in several publications including: American Art Collector Magazine, Drawing Magazine and Star Wars Art: Visions.


Facebook Group

Are you simply looking to talk to other artists and share your work in progress? Then our brand new Facebook group is the place to do it! The group is free and open to all levels of art experience.

It's a place to talk about your plaster cast studies. We know there is a vast community of studying plaster casts for art and we aim to bring us all together.

Think of it like talking with classmates after class hours. You can ask others things like what pencils to use and how to properly light your casts, as well as share your cast drawings, sculptures, and paintings with each other for friendly feedback!



*Please note: The bios and quotes were shared from the artist's website or supplied by the artist. Please visit their sites if you want full bios or information. Our selection is solely based on our research of the artist's portfolio and course offerings, and we did our best to mention resources we thought would be of interest to our particular audience. However, we at the Caproni Collection have not taken any of these courses.
