So, you think only a handful of super-talented artists can draw? Think again! The picture of colorful birds was drawn by an ordinary eight-year-old child using a very simple and fun drawing method called Monart. Created by the noted artist and teacher Mona Brookes, the Monart method provides children with an alphabet of five basic shapes that markedly improves their visual perception and drawing skill. Ms. Barb is a master of this method, and she’ll have your kids drawing like little Rembrandts in no time. Children will have fun using markers, colored pencils, charcoal, oil, and chalk pastels. They’ll also paint on canvas using acrylics and watercolors. Come create masterpieces of animals, nature, sea life, landscapes, architecture, fantasy, people and more. Member discount: 15 percent. Supply fee: $50.

Do great artists have a secret that allows them to see the world in a different way? The answer is yes, and in this class your older children will learn to create realistic drawings using a method called Monart. Created by the noted artist and teacher Mona Brookes, the Monart method provides children with an alphabet of five basic shapes that markedly improves their visual perception and drawing skill. The exquisite drawing of an octopus you see here was created by a 14-year-old girl using this proven method.
