Michael Malzone is another friend I reconnected with on Face Book. He has a wonderful art workshop in Pompton Plains, New Jersey (http://www.creatorsworkshop.com/). I spent the afternoon taking a class on “How to Draw Your Pet.”

This was the first art class I ever took since grammar school, so I think I did pretty good for a first try. I was in a class with one other adult and the rest were kids.

I had such a fun time. Michael is an excellent teacher with a great sense of humor. If anyone is in the area, I highly recommend his classes. His techniques make art pretty easy. Today we used the “grid” method. Great artists such as Leonardo Da Vinci have used this fun method.
