Lots, mostly in drafting. I have spent time studying art and architecture at Rice University. Most of my art education comes from my father, an illustrator with a degree in fine art from the Kansas City Art Institute. He was always there to direct my efforts in drawing, composition, color, and even sculpture. His mother was an accomplished watercolorist.
