I focus on drawing and only drawing with the most basic tools – sketch paper and graphite pencils. You won’t get distracted by other materials (paints, crafts, markers, etc) and buy hundreds of dollars of other supplies only to realize you’ve taken on too much and can’t learn it all! Most of my private lesson students master the basics in a year with a couple of hours of practice per week. Drawing is the crucial step towards mastering painting, sculpture, design—all the other forms of art you dream of creating. It is helpful to simplify and target this essential skill set so that you can move on to bigger creative dreams.
