A Day-in-the-Life of the Hein Academy of Art

Artist and teacher Jeffrey Hein has recently posted a video to YouTube showing a time-lapse view of a day-in-the-life of his Art Academy in Utah.  In it, not only do you see his students at work, but you get to see the lengths to which Hein goes to be able to paint his images entirely from life.   At different points throughout the video, Hein is visible dyeing fabrics, sewing costumes, and constructing props, as well as posing models and painting from costumed mannequins.

Jeff is a remarkable artist with a tremendous work ethic. He's always challenging himself and evolving.

How interesting! Side note (of amazement): I thought I was the only crazy one dyeing prop cloths and clothes to get the exact shade I want! Viva RIT!
