Before and After
The progress after having taken our classes
How many adults do you know that say they do not have an “artistic gene” or who say “I don’t know how to draw a straight line?”
Most of us stop drawing around 10 years of age when we become very critical and self-conscious about ourselves. As Pablo Picasso said, “All children are artists. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up.” The good news is that learning how to draw is like learning to ride a bicycle.
If you are a beginner, we suggest you start with drawing lessons. I like the method of Dr. Betty Edwards who wrote “Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain” and I use it with my students. We use pencil and charcoal and once the basic skills are mastered, I encourage my students to select the next medium they would like to explore. We provide instruction in acrylic, oils, watercolor, pastels, mix media (collage) and soft pastels. Measurable results can be achieved by each student after 12 weeks of continuous instruction!
