"Thank you for clear and organized instruction. The combination of interactive live introductions, check-ins, of the review of work and feedback and excellent instructive videos to view at our own pace were all most helpful. In addition, your presentation, as always, is full of humor, great attitude and generous humanity. Your love of family, nature, place, art and service are values that can be felt in our exchanges throughout the workshops. You so carefully review each student’s work and offer suggestions for improvement while also praising efforts and successful techniques and encouraging and inspiring your students. You are an amazing artist, instructor and human being. Thank you for the knowledge you share, the effort and time you devote to teaching all of us, your relaxed yet professional style, your ease of laughter and your generosity of spirit. What a memorable experience! Warm regards", Ginger Lang
