Educators believe in TEACHER workshops

"The class on pastel completely transformed the way I teach pastel in the classroom.”
Carol Stephenson, Middle School Art Teacher, Hathaway Brown School

"This program energizes me to go back into the classroom. I believe every teacher should do this. It shows students that you can learn constantly, and learning doesn’t stop at high school. I display each certificate I receive."
Jan McAndrew, Art Teacher, Lakewood High School
