"One word: 'Awesome!' Heather’s skills & talent as an artist combined with her warm, enthusiastic inclusive approach have afforded my daughter to grow and explore her creative passion. The variety of mediums helped her to try new things and create pieces she is truly proud to show. The technique and theory help to round out her whole learning experience. Thank you Heather!"

"Our daughter has thoroughly enjoyed every class that she’s taken with Heather. So much so, that she invited friends to an art class birthday party. Lots of fun! It’s been a great balance to add a creative activity to her extra-curricular activities." Ruth Rankin

"My daughter loves coming to art class with Heather. She loves it so much she has asked to join a second class per week. The pieces she has brought home are beautiful. Our favorite painting is on our fireplace mantel so we can see and enjoy it every day. Heather is very talented and works well with the children. We would recommend this class to everyone."
