Designed for all levels but the Beginners Are My Favorite!
The program is set up with a series of exercises each one explaining What, Where, Why and How an artist is to use the specific “Art Principle”  we call them “Art Tools Not Rules”.

There is a mixture of drawing and painting artist levels in each class. Allowing for the beginning drawing students to hear the advanced painting exercises and the advanced students to hear the beginning exercises reminding each student what they have learned or will learn.
