Currently, the short and lighthearted episodes feature kid friendly,
entertaining programs instructingchildren how to draw animals such as
walrus, flamingos, giraffes and turtles. Mass� says, "I decided to take
all of my experience creating and drawing internationally recognized
animated characters, and share just how easy it is by simply using this
innovative teaching technique." Each drawing is comprised of nothing
more than letters and numbers in order to create the completed drawings.
Mass� goes on to say, "It's Sesame Street meets Mr. Rogers meets Pee
Wee's Playhouse, and the goal is to get people interested in art and how
much fun it can be." To date, multiple episodes are available with a new
release continuing indefinitely every week. The website even offers a
free downloadable app so that kids can learn how to draw on the go.
Mass� says, "In a time where art programs are being cut from schools,
we've come up with a way to deliver the entertaining 'Learn To Draw'
series at no cost to the user." The producers are currently working with
teachers in the Los Angeles area to set up live shows within the
classroom. On the Muffalo Potato website, teachers can find out how to
incorporate the "Learn To Draw in Minutes" concept within their own
lessons. "When I was a kid," says Mass�, "my dad taught me and my
