Do you have a philosophy about teaching?

The art of sketching is an expression of a style or technique of freehand drawing.  It is a skill generally learned by drawing what you see, relying on the development of hand/eye coordination.  Can sketching skills be learned? The answer is YES!  If you have a desire to learn and a willingness to practice, practice, practice which are the keys to success.  It is a necessary foundation skill for the development of design to complement computer-aided activities.
