About the Author:

Peter Rubino’s passion for art began at an early age under the tutelage of his father, a fine artist. He was inspired by the works of Michelangelo, Rodin, Maillol, and Henry Moore. A dedicated instructor, Rubino currently teaches at the National Academy School of Fine Arts in New York City and the Rubino School of Sculptural Arts in Connecticut. In addition, he conducts annual workshops at the Scottsdale Artists’ School in Arizona and the Loveland Academy of Fine Arts in Colorado.
