Chuckers asked for something super cool, so here’s how to draw an eagle! This one is a little more difficult because of the “mysterious” lines, as Chuckers put it in the video, but a little practice can go a long way.

      Hi Jacob and Anna,

    Hi Rob!
    I am an elementary art teacher at North Olmsted City Schools. I wanted to talk with you about visiting my classroom for a drawing lesson with my students. I’ve used your videos a lot last year and my students love your site!!! Part of Ohio state standards is incorporating local artists to come in and help show students how art can transfer outside the classroom. I’d love to speak with you further if you are interested. North Olmsted’s mascot is an eagle so that’s why I chose this video to comment on. This is one of my go to videos! Thanks for all that you do! I hope to hear back from you.

      Hi Mrs. Kaczmarek

      Thank you so much for asking, that sounds like a lot of fun…though we probably don’t fit the description of being a local artist :) We actually live in Utah. With the internet it does seem like everyone is local. If you’re still interested maybe we could do a Google Hangout with your class. Feel free to email me
