Mission Statement
Coaches'​ Artwork / Bio
Our mission is to provide the best art instruction possible in a positive environment that cultivates each student’s talents. We are dedicated to recognizing, affirming and supporting each student’s emerging individuality by helping them strengthen their sense of self through art. 

​Classes
We offer private art lessons throughout the year. Our sessions are broken down into either 30 minute or 60 minute sessions once a week. Reservations are necessary and by appointment only. Our students have the opportunity to learn how to properly draw in two and three dimensional form using a variety of media such as Graphite Pencil, Colored Pencil, Water-Color-Pencils, Chalk Pastel Watercolor Paint, and Acrylics.

​A variety of subject matter and materials will be explored from week to week, such as Simple and Advanced Figure Studies – Cartoon and Realistic Animals - Landscapes and Still-life, and much more....
Students also, will be encouraged to draw and develop subject matter of their choice. 

Tuition
Our tuition is based on a four sessions per month due on the first of the month. If there is a fifth week, we do not hold sessions that week unless it is applied for a make-up. There is no contract or registration fee. If you enroll in the middle of the month, tuition will be prorated accordingly. Fees are $90/month  for four 30 min. sessions or $160/month for four 60 min. sessions.

Professional Art Starter Kits
For you convenience, we have available Art Starter Kits, which include: Staedtler Graphite Pencils, Sketch Pads, Erasers, Sharpener, and more...

Make-Up Classes
If a class is missed and you advise us within 24 hours of the class, you can take a make-up class either by piggy-backing your session if available to do so, or another available day and time.  Make up classes CAN be given as a courtesy one time during the month and are based on family hardships, like a down transportation vehicle, or illness (student/parent), school deadlines and testing, or something unforeseen that cannot be changed, for example ... when an out of town relative visits unannounced and takes little Johnny/Mary to do something special.
    However... when another extracurricular activity (eg: Beach, Movies, Friends House, Karate, Video Game lock down...lol - you get the idea) ...  is chosen over 'The Drawing Point' class or a (StickAroundDrums class too), then makeup classes WILL NOT be given under those circumstances.      
* Special One Time Exceptions can be made by The Drawing Point, if discussed. (eg: Surprise Birthday outing/party) 
We will not refund tuition money for missed classes nor carry the credit forward to the following month.

Specialty Workshops - Painting With A PArty!
We are now offering specialty workshops for "Painting Parties" as well as Girl Scout Workshops and Child Care On-Site Visits.     Contact us to discuss and book.

 ... small sampling of past and present
At its core, all of my artwork seeks to reveal the interlaced flow that I believe exists all around us. Science teaches us that time, energy, space and matter are linked in deep and complex ways. Perhaps they are just different expressions of one phenomenon. My art explores these links in a more intuitive way, to understand the flow and reflection of seemingly unrelated things: light to color to dark. How negative space invades positive space and changes both. I hope you find beauty in my work, even in some of my darker works. But beyond that I hope you find something more -- a connection.
