"And no artsy-crafty stuff!"

A mom called about her two college aged kids getting art lessons from me. She wanted to round out their very scientific background with a little art. I told her I thought I could help.

“But no artsy-crafty stuff,” she insisted; she wanted them to learn how to draw. So in a six week period, I think they learned to see better and draw better, including foreshortening and shadows.
