LIVERMORE -- Students and parents learned some of the secrets of fun drawing in special programs at Rancho Las Positas Elementary School on Friday.

Artist Kyle Tiernan spent the day, putting on two student assemblies during the day and a special Family Drawing Night event for students and their families in the evening.

In the assemblies, students drew along with the artist, step by step, through a series of fun drawing lessons. Each child was to complete three "refrigerator-ready" drawings to take home.

At the family event, everyone got in on the fun, with Tiernan teaching children and parents drawing skills.
