Over 20 years ago (in 1985, around the time Glenn was working at Disney) Glenn was hired by to record several drawing instruction lectures. ArtVideo produced 2 different series, titled "Language of Drawing" (containing 17 videos) and "Landscape Drawing & Painting" (containing 14 videos).
Glenn Vilppu is considered one of today's foremost draftsman and instructors in drawing and painting. Few contemporary artists have thoroughly absorbed the lessons of the great masters of the past and, in addition, none have the ability to communicate and inspire students with such knowledge and understanding. Trained in the classical art of the Great Masters of the Renaissance, Glenn understands the fundamental language of drawing, and he has kept the Florentine School alive. Studying with him, today, is no different than it was studying with Michelangelo, Rembrandt, or Leonardo. His students go through the same steps, beginning with the structure of the subject, the bones, then adding the muscles, and finally the flesh.
