"Working with Becky for over a year was pure joy!  Her instruction was focused, clear and easy for children (and adults) to understand.  I never enjoyed art class as a child/teenager, but being in Becky's class changed all that - she is a true teacher.  Children absolutely love her and I was able to watch their passion for art grow exponentially!
-Testimonial from Classroom Volunteer and Parent, Julie Decker
