About Us

Insight Technical Education was started as a brand in 1996 by Mel Peterman. It all started with him drawing some equipment for a sales presentation when he created some trucks, tractors, and other equipment. At the same time, he was in the process of teaching my oldest son how to draw who just was not interested in the "typical" kind of art. One day, Mel had an idea about how to teach his son to draw using objects he was interested in. Complete-A-Sketch™ and our publishing company was started from there. Since 1996, our goals have expanded and so has the number of titles and subjects we offer. We continue to create new and valuable titles and products to better serve your needs. Mel Peterman continues to advise the company, while his oldest son Ian Peterman has taken over operations and continues to grow the company and keep serving its customers.
