Let me help you keep the kids drawing. Check out my Summer Drawing Days taking place in New Lenox the week of June 20. I just posted a few of the pictures we will be drawing on my website. Ages 7 - 14 welcome. NON RESIDENTS, too.
During my 3 hour summer workshops, I will introduce your young artist on how to draw/color with watercolor pencils AND oil-based chalk pastels ... techniques that we cannot teach afterschool at school.
