Thank you for sending the links. I live in Sunnyvale, California. I came upon your site when I was searching the internet for some ideas for developing lessons for a free art class I wanted to offer kids in my neighborhood.

Best regards, Saba


I am in Johannesburg, South Africa. (Where Soccer Fever is more important than art at the moment - our country is rocking and roaring with soccer and overseas visitors.) I am a parttime artist always browsing for ways to improve my painting. I actually do conceptual art and is already an advanced artist. I am always interested in the ways other people approach technique.




Thank you for the drawing with pencil and oil pastel video instruction.

I live in Maryland and I was in a bind because my son's art teacher became ill in the last two weeks of class for the summer. I home school, so I googled free art classes on-line and found your website. We will be working on these lessons this week. They are having a great time with the doodling with pastels exercise. We plan on visiting some art museums next week to round out their introduction art experience.

Thanks again,

C Foster
