Each home-study course includes a thorough, easy to follow instruction manual, a student workbook, video demonstrations for all worksheet exercises and projects, personal monitoring of student work by a trained teacher, and free telephone support.

*Home-study instruction begins with the Foundation Course, a composite of the first 4 levels in a 10 level curriculum.

I currently use this course in my private classes and in the first phase of my college courses in basic drawing.

An Instruction Manual,
A student workbook
