2. Brad Clark, who will be an instructor at the Concept Art/Massive Black workshop in Dallas will give is a sneak peek at the material he will present at this event.

Dallas Texas March 28-31 2009 is hosting our (Concept Art's) latest workshop: Reverie.
The upcoming workshop in Dallas is going to be a big one. ConceptArt.Org has partnered with the AFI film festival, ReelFX, and Massive Black to bring you four days of inspiration, instruction, and raw creative motivation...and plenty of opportunity. I will have more info soon and will be updating this instructor list over the next couple weeks. Can't wait. This list is going to be a long one...so below is the first teaser highlighting some of the pros demonstrating and instructing. And here is the link regarding tuition and more info
