help expand the creative mind, aside from presenting new approaches to 
contemporary art making. Basic drawing techniques are based on Kimon 
Nicolaedes' "The Natural Way to Draw" and "Drawing on the Right Side of the 
Brain" by Betty Edwards. 

Applicants will be given a list of the materials needed for each workshop after 
they confirm their reservation. Workshop fees for the entire course program 
will be paid during the first session date of the workshop, or upon 
registration on the particular dates attended.
