Thank you for sending me the link. And God bless you for offering the course free.
My family and I are Filipino (from the Philippines) expatriates herein Abu Dhabi (United Arab Emirates). Both my daughters, 11 and 14 can draw really well but I would like for them to be guided professionally in order to develop their talent. I saw your website through yahoo search. When my kids saw the lessons through the link you sent, they were delighted and excited to start. This weekend we'll try finding the supplies that you listed.
Thanks again and we pray for more success for you.
Hi I live in spain, and i saw your website while I was browsing free instruction sites. thank you for giving free lessons
I think drawing with conte crayon may be a good step to get a more representative, impressionistic feel in my drawing. I have no desire to use anything other than one or two colors and am intrigued with getting the feeling from a drawing without colors.
My other drawing desire is to draw aircraft. I am a pilot and teach flying on the side. Antique and homebuilts are my subjects.
Any direction you can give me would be much appreciated. Your website is a good resource for information that I have not found elsewhere in any good amount. I'll look through it more thoroughly and give you some better feedback.
I took a water color class years ago. There were six of us women and we had a lot of fun, but I don't think we learned very much. The teacher just let us paint and "play with water color" and taking your lessons, Lois, I'm really feeling like I'm learning how to paint with water color! Great website, Annie B.
I didn't know much about conte crayon. I saw you classes and you sent the link, so then I started with the lessons. Conte crayon is awesome. The drawing and shading is fun and my sister is doing it too.
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.
I did the Intermediate Painting and two months after, I sold a painting in a local gallery. They want me to have a show in the spring, so I'm painting, painting, painting!
Thanks, for your help and comments,

Students ask what they should bring to Mixed Media Class. "Everything!" is my response. That includes found papers, magazines, oil pastels, pen and ink, pencils, acrylic paints, water color, sketch book, fabric, anything that can produce texture when glued down on cardboard (and oh yes, glue.)
