Arcenio Martin Campos attended New Mexico State University for studio arts, the University of New Mexico for art history, and received a Certificate of Painting from the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts. He began drawing on his own as a child, and between schools acquired much of his fine art education from independent study and private instruction of the human figure. Mr. Campos began his teaching career conducting classes in cast drawing whilst still in New Mexico. He has given lectures on anatomy, figure drawing, and painting and has facilitated open figure drawing groups in both Albuquerque and Philadelphia. His work has received numerous awards and has been exhibited throughout the United States and abroad.
Mr. Campos currently teaches at the Fleisher Art Memorial and the Washington Studio School and teaches workshops throughout the United States, Europe, South Africa, and New Zealand.
