Loving Heart Designs received a complimentary copy of DRAWING WITH MARK: TAKE FLIGHT, AS THE WHEELS TURN & FIRE STATION on DVD through Foundry Communications.

We are Drawing with Mark fans! Mark Marderosian is a warm and friendly instructor that teaches the basics of drawing for younger children. I even enjoy watching the videos and drawing right along with my children. It's fun to learn new techniques.It's fun to go on field-trips with Mark, too.

Please consider watching the sample video of Learn to Draw Saturn on Youtube. Drawing with Mark DVD's are fun, educational and entertaining for the entire family. Why not pick up a DVD or two for stocking stuffers this holiday season or any occasion?

Merry Christmas,

Janet Coffield & family
