Welcome!

Rita F. - Bakersfield, CA

Mark is an incredible teacher. His technique encourages all students (and parents!) to try, without hesitation to express themselves. They walk away with so much more than new drawing skills. They leave feeling good about themselves and with a love for the field if art. Thank you Mark!

Yipeeeee! Your family is invited to join Mark Kistler this Summer for a series of week-long In-Person & Virtual Summer Camps! Each week Mr. Mark will feature a differant theme of drawing adventures! Each day Mr. Mark focuses on one of the 12 Renaissance Words of three dimensional drawing, guiding students through a series of exciting drawings that build that skill. 

 

These Summer Art Camps are both In-Person & ZOOM LIVEstream and completely interactive. Students can speak directly with Mr. Mark, ask questions, make comments, and make suggestions. For the Zoom LiveStream, students are encouraged to have their computer cameras turned on to interact with Mr. Mark and show their drawing progress throughout the lesson. This ZOOM technology is such a perfect fit to Mr Marks award winning, world famous teaching methods!

Becky Johnson - Greenville, TN

Your class is my children's first exposure to live, on-line learning, and I must say that I am very impressed with your classes! I love that they're learning more drawing techniques and that they get a gentle introduction to live, on-line classes. You are a fabulous teacher and the kids love the classes! I am also impressed with how well you interact with kids.
