Art of Caricature

Video Course

In the fall of 2016, I released my course on how to draw caricature through the Proko online art school.

The course is divided into two parts: Part 1 is the fundamentals of caricature and Part 2 covers more advanced caricature techniques to help artists improve their skills at exaggeration and capturing likenesses.

All the main lessons, as well as several bonus videos are available for free on the Proko YouTube channel. But you can purchase the full course on and get access to longer versions of the lessons as well as many more narrated demonstration videos, student critiques and bonus content totaling 131 videos.

Here is a collection of all the primary lessons available on YouTube. If you visit the Art of Caricature playlist on the Proko YouTube channel, you can watch even more free content from my caricature course.
