Creative & Visual Arts in Oakland County

Livonia, MI & Farmington, MI

Learning to draw is learning to see. We teach our students how to draw what they see. Seeing is the foundation on which they build. How to look at light, shadow, proportion, alignment, positive and negative space. Once they have those skills, they can tackle any subject they want to draw, paint or sculpt! We also let our students pick what they want to work on. Both with the subject and the medium. We want our students to have fun and stay interested in art. By working with each student individually, we can do that!
