Think You Can’t Draw??? This class will teach techniques helping you to integrate component skills into a whole skill enabling you to draw.  It is a relatively simple procedure based on the book "Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain" by Betty Edwards.  I have successfully taught 5th graders and a 91 year old woman who stated she "couldn't draw a stick figure", to draw both hands and faces.  Before and after examples of previous classes are at the Suntan Art Center for you to view.;
