“Since completing three years of visual art studies in the early 2000’s I have taken numerous courses to refresh my drawing skills.  The Art Room’s Exploring the Human Head was by far the best class I have taken to understand how to draw the human head.  The course was instructed by Erika who is exceptionally skilled and knowledgeable regarding the anatomy of the human head.  Erika is also a very pleasant and encouraging teacher and for this reason I have undertook many classes of hers at The Art Room.  Thank you very much Erika.”
