We looooved Ms. Alanna! She was so good at talking WITH the kids (not just at them), asked them questions, encouraged critical thinking. I thought it was so great to learn about a different artist each day, so the kids are learning appreciation, and she explained what the artists were doing in a very accessible way. The activities were age-appropriate. We live in Texas, but I wish I'd known about the classes with Ms Alanna sooner - we would have signed up for much more!!

Improvements:

It would be great to know what materials are needed before the class starts if possible. But it wasn't a big deal to find them at the beginning of class. Just might make it easier.

We love when kids can name their new skill. Ananya will carry that color wheel lesson with her for life. Thank you for taking time to review. Hope to see you again soon.

Loved:

the instructor was great - she is fantastic with leading the discussion and teaching about the theory of art and including multiple kids and keeping the kids interested and engaged.

Improvements:

When we signed up we thought that the balance of skills instruction vs. theory instruction would lean more heavily toward skills vs. theory. my daughter still really loved it, but she was hoping for more creation time.
