Drawing Lessons from the Famous Artists School: Classic Techniques and Expert Tips from the Golden Age of Illustration by Stephanie Haboush Plunkett, Chief Curator of Norman Rockwell Museum and Magdalen Livesey, President of Cortina Learning International.
Learn to draw from the work of amazing artists such as Albert Dorne and Norman Rockwell, the founding artists of the Famous Artists School! Starting in 1948, the Famous Artists School offered aspiring artists correspondence courses on illustration, painting, and cartooning as a viable path to a creative and successful life literally, "A Richer Life Through Art."
In 2014, Norman Rockwell Museum acquired an extensive assortment of original art and archival materials from the school's current owners, Magdalen and Robert Livesey. The images included in Drawing Lessons from the Famous Artists School are curated from that extensive collection. Enriched throughout with fascinating sidebars and photographs documenting the working methods of master realists, Drawing Lessons from the Famous Artists School is an invaluable trove of inspiration and information on how to draw.
