Peter Kraus
About the author of
DRAWING MAGIC guidebook series
and
ANYONE CAN DRAW
Accomplished fine artist, graphic designer, teacher, and writer, Peter Kraus was born in Hungary, and emigrated to the United States of America as a child in 1956. Following graduation from high school, Peter opened his studio and gallery, where he created commissioned pieces and fine custom frames. During his college years, he accepted a prominent position with a well known advertising firm. Later, free-lancing as a designer, he produced backgrounds for television shows and convention centers. After earning his degree in art education from California State University, Northridge, Peter then established a complete graphic arts facility. In addition to his membership in the Los Angeles Cultural Affairs Department, the Valley South Regional Arts Council, Americans for the Arts, Allied Artists of the Santa Monica Mountains and Sea Shore, Inc., the Simi Valley Art Association, and the Santa Clarita Artistsí Association, Peter Kraus is the founder of ANYONE CAN. . . ARTS STUDIO & GALLERY and the author of the Drawing Magic series of books.

Highly proficient with multi medias and styles, Peter has taught drawing and painting for over thirty years. His unique approach to teaching art is remarkably successful with not only the artistically inclined, but also with the artistically challenged, special needs children, senior citizens, and at-risk-youth.

Peter's aim is to bring out the unique quality and expression of each student, and his innovative methods do just that. Passionate determination is evident in Peter's eyes when he says, "My view point is pretty simple: Talent can be learned. I not only believe, but from experience, I know that anyone can create fabulous, one of a kind works of art." Proven correct time and again, Peter's conviction that even the most artistically untrained person can learn to draw is the heart of his ANYONE...ARTS philosophy.
