  • Watercolor

    Michelle is an excellent teacher; she meets the needs of all levels from beginners to advanced painters. I have been able to grow as an artist while taking this class because of her ever changing curriculum.

    Megan Eiserman
  • Homeschool Qualification

    The most valuable part of the class was the illustrations, stories, worksheets, activities, Beth's laid back, and yet knowledgeable real life stories were so helpful and helped me feel confident in my abilities going forward.

    Melissa O'Toole
  • Flagging and Traffic Control

    The instructor had real world experience which meant that he knew what he was talking about! .

    Steve Garman
  • Digital Photography

    Her practical advice and actual photos is what I liked most about this class, different versions of the same shot, even the not so great ones. So generous with her info and time.

  • Computer Literacy

    The most valuable part was the resources for purchasing and what class to take after this one.

    Mary J.
  • Photoshop Elements

    The most valuable part was getting the basic knowledge to get me started—Karen was very patient and supportive.
