In Art Wizards Everyone Can Draw, kids learn to draw the things that kids find exciting.
INDIVIDUALIZED INSTRUCTION IN A GROUP SETTING
In Art Wizards, kids learn to draw the things that kids find exciting. That’s where we start. We give them all the information they need to be successful, but not so much that we stifle their imagination or limit their opportunities. Projects include fish, birds and animals of all kinds, people, landscapes, still life, mythical creatures, movie characters and cartoons. We show them how to break down a scene or character so it comes out looking like what they intended. We are to drawing what phonics is to reading. We show them how easy it can be when they know how to use chalk and oil pastels, when it’s better to use colored pencils and where markers fit in. They learn that a problem can have more than one solution, that small changes can have a big effect, and that there is more than one way to look at the world around them. With consistent and ongoing practice throughout the school year, our students are amazed at the progress they make.
It’s easy! It’s exciting! It’s rewarding! And it has a super-positive effect on all other subjects.

My philosophy is that ANY person of any age can learn to draw beautifully, regardless of prior experience or ability, and that learning the skills of drawing will have beneficial influences in a great many areas of life and learning.
