About Darren R. Rousar

Founder of Atelier Rousar | online


"For centuries, students began their studies by drawing and painting from antique casts. They learned to see the outside shape and the edge of the shadow and how to model halftones and turn edges - essential skills for any realist artist. Darren does a remarkable job of explaining and illustrating in great detail how students today may learn these skills."

-Richard Whitney, PhD.H, Artist and author. Studied with Sid Willis and R. H. Ives Gammell.

"Darren Rousar provides helpful tips that only an active, involved teacher can provide. It's clear he has worked with students who tackle the problems he addresses when learning to see values and shapes correctly. Each problem is addressed with a solution and encouraging advice."

-A. Champlin
