You have been such a wonderful influence
on Caroline, her art work is lovely but even better she does it
because she loves it. You nurtured her perspective and she gained
confidence in her skills. It was a gift to a young girl who needed
that support! And you made it FUN! –
While we enjoy our new home, we still miss Aubrey's experiences
in your wonderful art classes. Her skills and confidence soared
under your instruction. –
I have to tell you... Gwen says that I have done 2 wonderful things
in my life. First, I gave birth to her, and Second, I signed her
up for art lessons! Isn't that great?! She loves it! Thank you for
your hard work and dedication! –
• Emmeline and Liam will both want to take art lessons in
the fall. Also, they are looking forward to the camps this summer.
Thanks for all you do! Emmeline says that art class is her "vacation",
so we are so glad she has that bright spot in her week. –
• Thank you for all the wonderful instruction you have given
Nora, we feel her skill as an artist have greatly improved. –
• There are very few extracurriculars that Sam gets excited
about going to and your art class has been a great success with
him! Thanks for all your great teaching! – Chris
• They really love the class, Hua, and I'm so impressed by
how much they have both learned. I see them using your techniques
all the time, when they sketch flowers or draw animals or people.
• Elias would DEFINITELY like to continue with you in the
fall. He is passionate about his art classes with you! So please
keep a space open for us. – Cynthia
We’ll definitely be signing up for art lessons for the fall.
Anna loves working with you and Bill and I so value the peace and
calm setting you provide for her to learn and grow. I don’t
believe she told you about a special honor she recently received,
which reflects back on you. One piece of student art was selected
from each of the 5 or 6 Urbana elementary schools, to hang in the
School Board building for the coming year. Anna’s piece was
selected, of the whole school! She personally presented it to the
school board a couple of weeks ago. I’ve attached a photo.
Thank you again, so much, for giving her such pleasure in making
• The kids had a wonderful week. We are amazed at some of
their paintings!! Thanks so much! – Kim and Matt

He attended your summer art camp (creature camp II) and loved it.
He said he learned more about technique from his week with you than
in any art class he has ever taken. Thank you! – Lisa
• Thank you for your work with Kaelen. I'm so happy that he
still loves to draw and I am quite impressed with his work. He continues
to enjoy your lessons. We are truly lucky to have you here - professionally
and personally! – Carolyn
• We marvel every week at the wonderful work you enable the
kids to do. You are amazing! Thank you. – Antoinette
Thank you, Hua, for ushering Rachel through this process. You are
not only a talented artist but also a clear-eyed teacher who brings
out the best in her students. – Elaine

• Lauren's teapot drawing got into the U of I art show! …
Lauren was so excited when she got the e-mail notifying her. She

air and a squeal of delight! Thanks for helping her with that!!!
