(I particularly recommend going to art classes, some good pencil lessons in Art I.)
“My site is one of my creative projects. It originally started as a teaching tool for my high school art class. It all started around 2006 when I realized that I have way too much paper resources for my lesson plans. I decided to organize my lessons, presentations, handouts, worksheets, and tests in one place.”
