What they are saying about Amy's last workshop...
"I enjoyed the class. I had never tried doing a cat in colored pencil until now. I thought it would be beyond my skill level. Amy is an excellent instructor who provides clear directions and feedback that was very helpful. Although we did not finish the drawing, I am going to complete it, frame it, and may give it to my sister. She has a cat that looks like Bobbins. I look forward to being able to take another class with Amy."

"I loved this class. Amy provides clear instruction and demonstrations. This was a fairly complicated project with many challenges, such as directional fur, delicate shading, blurry backgrounds, and a cat’s face, ears, and whiskers. I feel that Amy provided a good level of instruction in these techniques. I liked the length of the class sessions. Using Padlet, she was able to give us useful feedback as we went along. I am looking forward to taking more classes from Amy."
