But in all their diversity, they have a common desire to continue to learn and grow. And they also enjoy a challenge…so they’ve chosen to draw the human form. It sharpens the skills of keen observation, improves drawing abilities and stimulates the imagination. It is also one of the most difficult to master.  For more information call 651-292-1239.
