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

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. F. L.

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. J. L. 

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. M. G.

I learned many detailed skills and techniques. I was pleased with progression and final results. N. U.

Nonna works individually with students after general instruction. Great! B. R.

Again, I thank you for being such a good teacher and  obviously an exceptionally talented artist.
Dr. C. Y.

Thank you so much for the assignments and your feedback during these two drawing courses. 
I really learned a lot from you and will continue to be curious about the world and try to capture moments in time by drawing them.
All the best to you,
