Videos of Jerome Witkin's November 2012 visit to Laguna College of Art & Design

For our fans of artist Jerome Witkin, I have links to two videos from his November 2012 visit to Laguna College of Art and Design in California.  They are on Vimeo, and anyone may watch them, but you have to join Vimeo and sign in if you wish to comment; it's free.

The first link is to a drawing demonstration in an art class.  The video is just over 11 minutes.  It is, of course, sped up to fit into a short video, but it's fascinating to see JW at work, as if you're looking over his shoulders.  They also include some of his remarks to the students, especially about the importance of studying anatomy.

The second video shows JW visiting the studios of a few students and giving crits of their work, along with various insightful comments.  It runs about 11 minutes.

BTW, the photo above was taken while Jerome was at LCAD.  There's a set of 47 photos, including this one, on the school's Facebook page.  Here's a link to the album; Facebookers can "like" the LCAD page, and then check out the photos here:
