Mark Kistler's Virtual Classroom
TV viewers may know cartoonist Mark Kistler from his starring roles in Public Television's The Secret City, The Draw Squad, or the Emmy-winning Imagination Station. But perhaps his biggest role is that of art educator. In more than 7,000 school assembly workshops worldwide, Mark teaches kids of all ages, including adults, easy-to-learn, step-by-step techniques to turn blank pages into grinning sharks, soaring jet planes, or houses frolicking on two legs—literally anything they can imagine. He emphasizes drawing and doodling in three dimensions, showing drawers how to give depth to their creations.
