I am enough of an artist to draw freely upon my imagination. Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world...
--Albert Einstein
Help each student gain confidence in his and her  artistic vision by convincing each student that they are the only artist in charge of the work.

Provide the opportunity for each student to master basic drawing skills and experience a wide range of art materials and mediums with a self-directed, “learn by doing” system.

Teach important life skills, in studio, such as...
“We can’t fix it until you get it on the page” diminishes procrastination.

“Draw it step-by-step” reveals the ease of accomplishing complicated tasks by breaking them down into small bites.

“Cut-ups are welcome here, cut downs are not” establishes the habit of having fun while working but never at another person’s expense.
