We can teach anyone how to draw!
The Monart guided drawing system shows students how to perceive the visual world in terms of five basic elements of shape. Just as a musician learns notes and scales in order to play an instrument, students learn the skills necessary to translate their perceptions onto paper. This method has achieved phenomenal results among both children and adults, including those with learning differences. Teachers that regularly use the guided drawing method in the classroom, report that reading and math scores rise as much as twenty percent. Studies have shown that when students draw the subjects they are studying they learn the information eight times faster and retain the information eight times longer.
Monart guided drawing is more than a method that teaches people how to draw. Leading educators recognize Monart guided drawing as a teaching system that helps students to learn how to focus and concentrate, make decisions, solve problems, sequence and develop hand-eye coordination. In a non-competitive, peaceful environment students learn that drawing is a teachable subject in which anyone can learn to draw, and that there are no mistakes in art.
Students come to understand that in class there is no competition or comparisons, no right or wrong way to draw, and that you will learn from everything you draw, even if you don’t like the results. In addition to learning the skills of drawing, learning to draw has also been shown to have positive effects on children’s different learning styles…including their ability to focus, plan, and follow-through to completion.
With Monart guided drawing, every student has the opportunity to experience increased self esteem, creativity and confidence, and develop skills that are transferable to other areas of learning. At the Monart School of Art we strive to provide the very highest quality of art education. This is accomplished two-fold because of our patented method and our extremely qualified teachers.
