Nonna is excellent. She has the talent and knowledge to help me improve my art work. Nancy Brower

I enjoyed the class very much. I began the class not knowing how to draw, but now I can see what progress I have made. I very much enjoy the pleasant atmosphere. I find it very relaxing. Nonna is excellent and very knowledgeable. Freda Lazar

Nonna is enthusiastic and has a trained eye to spot problems and suggests corrections as well as demonstrates personally. She changes up the session with spotlights on artists and books and how they relate to subject matter. Jeannie Lachen

I was very intimidated by trying out drawing for the first time, but under Nonna's instruction, I found out that I really enjoy it. I strongly recommend this class to anyone interested in trying a new art class or needs a refresher of the basics. Melissa Gauron

I learned many detailed skills and techniques. I was pleased with progression and final results. Neil Unverzagt

Nonna works individually with students after general instruction. Great! Barbara Royce
