The Monart Method has been recognized and appreciated by educators, parents and the media since 1980:

9“Mona Brookes’ well-chosen words and illustrations broaden our conception of learning in the arts and suggest ways in which the arts can contribute productively to the mastery of other disciplines.”

Howard Gardner
Professor of Education
Harvard University
Author “Multiple Intelligence”

“I have used “Drawing With Children” as the required text for my Art in the Elementary School course for six years.  Many of my students who are teaching in the elementary school have relayed to me how successful and exciting their applications of Mona Brookes’ methods are in the classroom.”

John Solem
California Lutheran University

“The method emphasizes step-by-step guidance for drawing in a learning environment that is non-competitive and non-judgmental, where when pencil meets paper there is no right or wrong.”

Don Oldenburg
The Washington Post

14“Monart, a method of drawing developed by California art educator Mona Brookes, shows that anyone is capable of drawing.  Brookes’ techniques have attracted national attention.”

Lynn Silverman, Director
Kennedy Center
Events for Teachers

“I’ve watched the Monart Method gain grass-roots popularity.  It works!  It’s a MUST for teachers.”

Dr. Lucia Capacchione

“A superb job of simplifying the drawing process, taking away the mystery and the terror.  In all the years of giving and organizing teacher workshops, I never read more positive evaluations from teachers.”

Jean Katz, Special Education
L.A. Co. Supt. Of Schools

7“I have witnessed first hand the admiration, respect, and adulation that the public feels for Mona Brookes and her methodology of teaching drawing.”

Robert Evans
Administrative  Director
National Children’s Museum

“I knew the instant I met Mona Brookes, here was someone who was going to have a profound effect on my daughter and whose thoughts would one day be established as part of school curricula everywhere.”
