There are lots of classes out there, but these are my personal recommendations for valuable, effective training, based on the most current scientific and forensic art guidelines.
I can’t make any guarantees, of course. It is up to you to email the instructor with any questions you may have prior to taking the class.
Just a reminder: forensic art is a very small, very niche field, so it is extremely competitive as well. The people who will have a massive advantage over you, no matter how well you draw, are already in law enforcement. If you aren’t, you need to be willing to join. Why? That’s where the work is. I advise reading the previous link, and Ten Steps to Become a Forensic Artist.
