The methodology created by Mona Brookes, has been very successfully
used in the US over the past 30 years; it serves not only to teach
how to draw, but has been recognized as an educational system that
develops the power of concentration, self esteem, and problem-solving
skills, as well as the capacity to follow instructions from a teacher
and the development of individual expression.
At the DART drawing school, we teach students how to draw using
Mona's methods. María Teresa Farré, a world-class
trained architect, with degrees from the University of Barcelona
ETSAB and Columbia University in New York, has opened DART in Barcelona
after having been trained personally by Mona Brookes in the US.
Our program provides students enough structure to ensure accomplishment,
along with plenty of freedom to allow for individuality and creative
expression. A full range of materials and advanced techniques are
explored to continually challenge students' developing skills. Students
realize that we are all capable of drawing; it only requires strong
individual effort and careful and disciplined work.
