Self expression through art is an amazing experience. It's personal on all levels.

The most fabulous thing about being an artist is that boundaries regarding creativity are non-existent. The artist is always in a state of learning. Art is a progressive practice that takes time to develop.

Materials are not included.
Materials needed are pencil, paper and a willingness to explore.

Drawing lessons will be assessed based on the individual's current abilities and their goals.
Ages 9-40

I'm not completely new to crocheting but I ran into a pattern that didn't seem to be working up correctly. Salma worked through the beginning with me so we could compare outcomes and talk through next steps. That gave me the confidence to go on, and I'm now half way done with a warm shawl that will keep the winter chill away on days when I have to go into the office.

Great first lesson. My six year old had a great time getting to know Salma and learning the first Arabic letter.
