“A drawing is simply a line going for a walk…” ~ Paul Klee 

“Life is the art of drawing without an eraser…” ~ John W. Gardner 

“To confer the gift of drawing, we must create an eye that sees, a hand that obeys, a soul that feels;
And in this task, the whole life must cooperate. In this sense, life itself is the only preparation for drawing.
Once we have lived, the inner spark of vision does the rest…” ~ Maria Montessori
