Dustin Schumacher graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Tyler School of Art at Temple University in May, 2010. Professor Charles Schmidt was a great influence on Dustin's desire to learn realism. Under Professor Schmidt's teaching, Dustin learned the principles of color, the human figure, and oil painting. He then continued his studies in the Fine Arts at the school for contemporary realist art, Studio Incamminati. Under the guidance of Robin Frey at Studio Incamminati, Dustin studied drawing and painting the human figure and still life to refine his observational and technical skills. Most recently, Dustin has earned a certification in graphic design and web design at Bucks County Community College.
