The Nevada Museum of Art has a great selection of classes and open studio sessions.  We just finished a four week open studio focusing on the costumed figure.  The models were great and all had a wealth of knowledge regarding the time periods and characters they were dressed as.  I’m trying to get my traditional media legs back so I made an oil sketch each session.  The first one was embarrassing enough to get turned upside-down and reused the second week (WWII German Medic).  Each panel is 16” x 20” and was made in just under 3 hours.http://blog.andrewjohanson.com/images/Costume1.4.jpg

These remind me so much of a friend of mine, who is a historical artist and reenactor as well as a children's book illustrator. You can check out his work here: http://davidgeister.com/
