Course Description 

In this class you will explore my unique approach to perception and observational drawing that I learned during my 5-year Art Apprenticeship with Norwegian artist, Jan Valentin Saether. You will learn my 5 Keys to observational drawing and whether you are a beginner or an advanced artist, you will gain a new way of seeing the world around you.

Drawing is the core method of researching, investigating, developing and communicating ideas. Today, drawing is viewed as an essential skill for everyone. Drawing is a sacred activity because it engages your mind, your heart and your unique point of view!

If you wish to purchase my book, Drawing as a Sacred Activity, it is available on Amazon.
