Drawing A-Z

Suzanne began teaching at Gage in 1999. Her approach as a teaching artist focuses on method and technique, (not acquiring a style that you already possess), that provides the basic foundation skills to making art. She aims to fill the missing gaps between concept and the application of these ideas with clear information and a step-by-step approach. She has published two books on art and is working on her third.
