Here 's what our students are saying:

I just had to send you a big thank-you for being so patient with me when it comes to my painting.  EVERYTIME I do a painting I learn more about painting but more than that I learn a little bit more about myself especially the last painting with the knife, you taught me not to be so perfect there are no mistakes & this finally hit me on that one painting.

Thanks again I don't think you realize how you guys really do help me & it's not always about the painting. THXS again guys. ? Cath

 "Your classes are so much fun I always count on having a good time. Time just seems to fly by in class. My daughters have  taken both of the paintings I've done so far, and my son is demanding his fair share, so I guess I'll be taking more classes!"

- Karen J.

 "Your assistance and support in allowing me to realize I can actually paint is great.  I really feel I have accomplished something special when completing your classes."

 "I can't believe I sold my painting! A neighbor was visiting when I got home from class and he loved my painting, offered me a price and now it's hanging on his wall, not mine. Will you be doing that desert scene anywhere else this winter? I'd love one for myself!"

- Helen J.

 "My family couldn't believe I painted this myself! It was my very first painting experience ever and you both made it very enjoyable for me. Thanks for all your help. I've already signed up for the rest of the series this season."

"You two are the best. You instill confidence in all of your students, even though we realize you must sometime cringe at our work. You always seem to fix it up for us, and we thank you for that.

Painting in your classes is very relaxing and has opened my eyes, and mind, to a new hobby."

 "...thank you for teaching us the new painting techniques. Even though we are each judging ourselves on our painting probably too hard, (and it was difficult to break out of the mold and learn something new...), I think I didn't convery my appreciation for how you guys are helping us and just really wanted to say thanks. I learned a lot!! You guys make it fun and your classroom is so peaceful, we love going there. Wish we could more often!! Thanks again!"

"I'm really enjoying your classes and feel like I am learning - not only how to hold the brush, but even how to keep the paint where it belongs and not on me! lol. I have never liked anything I've painted before now. So that is a real plus for me. Thank you for all your help."
