I developed the basic curriculum in 1992, when my son, Chase, started Kindergarten. He would start crying if he was asked to draw in his journal. When he did draw something, he was unhappy with what it looked like. I wanted to help him achieve success. That is when the Mrs. Woolever Kids Can Draw began. I have been successfully teaching this program in many Elementary Schools in Southern California for over 20 years.
Step by step instruction building self concepts, hand eye coordination, and self control.
Family approved by the Dove Foundation, 2014 Power to the People Award from California Legislature Assembly Woman, Melissa Melendez, for my volunteer work teaching kids to draw with the curriculum I have created.

My life changed in June of 1990. I was a professional in the business world of computers, but when I contracted encephalitis and spent a month in a coma, on life support, and had a stroke in my brain stem, that life was over. After my recovery, I was no longer the same person. I was unemployable and fell into a deep depression. My son, Chase, started Kindergarten in 1994, and I started volunteering in his class. Volunteering helped me feel useful and wanted. The children loved me for the person I was now. It was an El Nino year, and the children were inside the classroom a lot. I started to draw animals on the chalk board in the classroom. My son's teacher asked me if I could teach her kids how to draw the animals, too. I told her I couldn't. Me, teach? That was laughable. That was the beginning. Mrs. Woolever Kids Can Draw is a program that teaches kids to draw shapes in a fun and entertaining way.
