By the time my daughter was ten years old she was avoiding or struggling with any school assignments that involved art, never drew for pleasure, and told me “I stink at drawing.” I convinced her to try one of your classes and she immediately felt safe and optimistic enough to keep going. Now, week after week, she produces pieces of art that continue to impress me, and her new confidence has completely transformed how she approaches her academics."
