About the Instructors
All classes are presented by professional artists and instructors.

Rey Bustos, one of the leading artistic anatomists in the country today, will be your instructor in January and February 2007. An artist and art teacher and a professor of anatomy at Art Center College of Design, Bustos also teaches at California State University, Los Angeles, Disney Feature Animation, and the Los Angeles Academy of Figurative Art and provides illustration work to clients as diverse as Reebok, Pepsi, and Oldsmobile. He follows in the footsteps of Peter Paul Rubens, using his mastery of the mechanics of the human body to create beautiful, fluid, gestural life drawings. An outstanding teacher, Bustos will guide Drawing Hour participants in making drawings of the human form.
