"Since taking classes at Studio 1.6, my teenage son has shown significant growth in his drawing abilities. He's always loved to draw, but has been self-taught. Anita has taught him new skills, and moved him beyond his previous comfort zone, tackling portraits, landscapes, still lifes. Studio 1.6 also offers adult classes, which I recently signed up for and am greatly enjoying. I highly recommend Studio 1.6 for any age."
