Nita Draut Turns Memories into Masterpieces!
A retired secretary, at age 70 Nita Draut wandered into Master Sandra Angelo's Portrait Apprenticeship Art Class with a curiosity about art.
"Do you think I can learn how to draw?" she said, showing Sandra her stick figure drawings.
Because Sandra Angelo specializes in working with people whose art is so bad it never even made it to their mom's fridge, she wasn't daunted by Nita's weak skills.
She said "Yes,of course I can teach you to draw!" and the rest is history.
With the skills she acquired in her portrait apprenticeship with Sandra Angelo, Nita now enjoys drawing 4-6 hours a day, churning out more than 500 life like portraits that have garnered her top awards. Nita Draut's art has been featured in many award wining books, (even on the cover), in magazine articles, in newspapers and even on television shows. Her fame has now spread over 5 continents.
