“I liked learning about textures and how to make different shades by learning how to mix complementary colours, like orange and blue. I liked learning the different steps of layering. I’d rather have in-person learning but the virtual lesson worked out better than I thought. I learned different skills. I had fun!”

Kathleen, age 10

“Thanks so much for facilitating the online learning session. Morgen had a great time and was very proud of the work she produced. Here are a few words from her: ‘The most interesting thing for me was learning how to do landscape art. It was really fun and interesting!'”

Gavin + Morgen, age 12
