Rosemary is a dedicated artist and teacher. She worked with my daughter to create her high school visual arts portfolio. Rosemary demonstrated not only a clear knowledge of what high schools were looking for in a portfolio but she knew my daughter as an artist. This helped to guide us in the high school selection process. With her guidance, my daughter is attending AND thriving at the high school of her dreams!

Sylvia was excellent! I came to her class with very little knowledge of the subject but she was patient and taught me step by step on the topics I wanna learn. She was very knowledgeable of Adobe software, professional and very understanding of my schedule. I am confident now on using the program after our classes. I highly recommend her! Thanks Sylvia!

My two daughters aged 7 and 9 have been having lessons with Jessica for a couple of months and she has done such an excellent job of catering to their very different personalities and preferred learning styles. She is so patient and calm. She has taught them various techniques, including how to work with charcoal, and they have both improved so much in such a short time.
