Hello Lovely Art Teachers & Friends, and welcome to the Dept. of Aesthetics blog!
My name is Mandy Theis, and I am a classically trained artist and licensed art teacher. I know that anyone can learn how to draw who takes the time to learn from someone who has the skills.
I started this blog to help answer all the questions that land in my inbox every day about drawing and painting. My goal is to provide quality content about how to draw and paint well, and how to teach art skills successfully.
In this blog, I am going to share with you everything I know about drawing and painting - from materials and methods to introducing you to people, places, and ideas that will help you improve your drawing and painting skills.
I'm also going to share with you everything I know about how to efficiently teach art skills to others.
Have a question about drawing or painting? Want to see me cover a specific topic? Make sure to leave requests and comments so I can provide the knowledge you want most!
I look forward to this journey into ArtEducationLand with all of you!
