So you’ve bought a few casts, sharpened your pencils, but aren’t sure where to go from here. Or maybe you studied cast drawing years ago but are looking to fine-tune your craft or find some guidance to improve. We thought we’d share two great online resources for learning to draw. Both have used our casts!
An online course
Have you always wanted to attend an atelier? It is clearly the best way to learn how to see. But if that's not possible for you, the Sight-Size Cast Drawing online course can help. Even if you have no experience whatsoever, you can learn how to see and draw in your own home through Atelier Rousar | online.
Check it out here: https://atelierrousar.com/
The course utilizes casts of course!
An online group and page
Learn to Draw with Peter Pletl is an online hub of people supporting each other with self-study. You can “like” Peter’s page or join his group to give and get feedback. There are many videos posted where Peter corrects members’ drawings. Check it out on Facebook!
We hope these resources help!
And of course, here are a few of our favorite casts to draw from:
Old Man with Beard Mask #711
The masks in our collection, which can be hung on a wall, are perfect for drawing lessons, and offer a less-expensive option than an entire, in-the-round bust. This piece is popular due to the partially-open mouth, the flowing beard, and the hair.
David Full-Size Details #150
The left eye, left ear, nose, and mouth from Michelangelo’s David are excellent casts for study as they allow students to focus on facial features individually and perfect their skills. These pieces are also sold separately.
Geometric shapes set of three #335
In order to learn how to see more complicated shapes it can be incredibly helpful to draw simple ones. These shapes can be ordered individually or also as a set. Made of a variety of sturdy materials, we paint them white for your study purposes.
If you utilize these resources or our casts, we’d love to see your drawings!
