Drawing Improves Your World
Drawing is an essential part of a child’s learning process. Drawing skills are used to investigate both natural and constructed environments, record observations, solve problems, and express ideas. We passionately advocate the use of drawing in schools. Drawing skills are the foundation of visual art education and help students achieve success in all school subjects—strong art, strong schools! Read about our Draw-to-Learn program:
In an increasingly visual world, adults are finding drawing to be a powerful tool for communicating ideas and solving problems in the workplace. Drawing is also the perfect way to relax and be involved in a gratifying activity away from the job.
Our programs are designed to reconnect students with their thrill of childhood drawing and build confidence in sketching from observation and imagination.
Drawing the Future
More than ever, the world needs innovative ideas. Drawing is integral to the process of generating and conveying bold, useful ideas. At the core of the Scribbles Institute is the desire to stimulate the imaginations of our students and show them ways to apply their drawing skills in everyday life. We take each student’s education seriously. We also understand and share the joy drawing brings to intrepid, creative minds.
