Monart Drawing Studio is an art school which uses the Monart drawing method to teach children, teenagers, and adults how to draw, while boosting self-esteem and independent thinking skills. Located in Arlington Heights, IL, this studio serves the northwestern suburbs of Chicago, including Buffalo Grove, Wheeling, Prospect Heights, Mt Prospect, Palatine, Long Grove, Elk Grove Village, Inverness, Lincoln Shire, Park Ridge, Schaumburg, Hoffman Estates, Lake Zurich, Hawthorn Woods, South Barrington, Northbrook, Roselle, and Streamwood. The Monart Method based on a book by Mona Brookes, Drawing with Children, is art instruction based on the Alphabets of Shape. Any object that a student might want to draw can be interpreted in 5 Basic Elements of Shape: dot, circle, straight line, curved line, and angle line. Children can achieve realistic drawing and yet be free to be creatively different.
The Monart Drawing Studio works on the philosophy that anyone can learn to draw and that there are no mistakes in art, only learning experiences. Children begin the in the Getting Ready Drawing class. They are guided through a step-by-step lesson of an object, animal, or character. The instruction also includes guidance about length, placement, distance between elements, and how the shapes interact with each other.
As the student matures in their abilities, they can move up to Basic Drawing classes. Here the students move through the instructions as in the Getting Ready class, but there are added details, requiring more dexterity and thinking skills. When a student is able to draw independently, a test picture is done to show their ability with proportion and technique. They move up to Intermediate classes. Here they can work with more advanced multi medium techniques.
