Get smart at art!

ImagineFX: Sci-fi & Fantasy Art magazine - - Artist News, Software & Events -

Now in its eighth year, IMC is ar­guably one of the most an­tic­i­pated teach­ing pro­grammes in the world, fea­tur­ing award-win­ning artists and in­spir­ing guests of hon­our. Get­ting in is tough, with most spots filled within a few weeks, so if you were un­lucky in your IMC en­deav­our, you might be in­ter­ested in its sis­ter pro­gramme: SmArt School.

Last­ing 12 weeks, it’s an in­ter­ac­tive on­line train­ing pro­gramme aimed at ded­i­cated artists who as­pire to de­velop their skills and re­fine their craft as im­age-mak­ers and storytellers. From boot­camps with Marc Sch­eff to men­tor­ship classes with the likes of Todd Lock­wood, there’s bound to be some­thing to take your fancy. Book and comic artist Scott M Fis­cher, award-win­ning il­lus­tra­tor Re­becca Lévéille-Guay and New York Times best­seller Dan Dos San­tos are also among the fac­ulty.

“After spend­ing five years de­vel­op­ing the Il­lus­tra­tion Master Class and ini­ti­at­ing my own in­di­vid­ual on­line men­tor­ship pro­gramme last year, I feel that the time has come to open up th­ese ex­pe­ri­ences to a wider au­di­ence,” ex­plains Re­becca. “I be­lieve the world of art and il­lus­tra­tion is a big tent, and there is room for in­spired, hard-work­ing cre­ators to suc­ceed to­gether.” Find out more and en­rol at the SmArt School web­site:
