WHAT MAKES THIS UNIQUE?

Stephen’s goal in creating the Silver Drawing Academy Mentorship Program is for teaching new approaches to drawing and designing and for the purpose of creating a unique, intimate setting in his own personal classroom. The classroom offers a comfortable environment in which to learn. You are not just a student, you are personal guest of Stephen’s. By having limited seating, this experience adds a personal touch with a lot of one on one attention. Imagine, just 4 other students, yourself and your personal mentor, Stephen. This class is open to all skill levels.
