Contour drawings.

Training an artist to draw what they see can be difficult. Contour drawings can help budding artists by creating a strong drawing foundation by teaching artists how to depict what their eyes are seeing through the movement of their hands.

Below are some beautiful examples from Miss Sam’s Youth Lesson One class.

Art can change a child's life for the better, one painting at a time.

This time of year is so special for families, as it's a time to celebrate and take joy in the many pleasures of life.  One of the greatest joys of this time of year is giving gifts to those you love, to show them just how much you appreciate them.

Why not give your child the gift of an artistic education?  This gift will be theirs for a lifetime.  

Many children are unaware of their own artistic talent, until they discover it, sometimes accidentally, by trying out a class.  Such was the case with this young student, Toby, a sampling of whose work is shown below.  

Toby and his mom happened upon art/work/place at a school fair and decided to try out a class.  At the age of 5, Toby started out as a Mini Maker and created this beautiful painting of a fish during his first lesson!

Toby is now progressing through our Youth Curriculum, and he couldn't be doing better!  


At the age of 6, Toby is creating drawings that look as if they have been done by lifelong artists, like this awesome drawing of a lobster!

This painting is the most recent, and shows how much Toby has progressed in a short 3 months!  

It's exciting to imagine what Toby will be creating at this time next year, and what he will be creating when he is a teen, and when he is an adult!

What will your child create?  Give them the gift of art and discover it together!
