This is the 6th time I have taken classes to renew my license. It is the first time I've been able to find anything pertaining to Art. It is also the first time I've actually learned anything new or useful to my area. My instructor, Debora Supplitt was great. She provided useful feedback in a very timely manner. Thank you for offering the variety of classes that you do and thank you for hiring quality instructors to present them. As a 32 year teacher, I know quality when I find it.
