TESTIMONIALS

Here are some comments from a few of my students the:

Shay B - Art Student

Shay B – Art Student

Hannah D. – Art Student

“Learning the fundamentals of drawing, and copying art styles different from what I was comfortable with, really stretched my skills.    Mrs. Wright taught me the importance of careful study and observation. Sticking with and completing challenging assignments, along with the overall blessing of a loving Christian teacher, grew me in character as much as in my artistic abilities!” ~Hannah D., Drawing I and II

Caroline D. - Art Student

Caroline D. – Art Student

“Lisa Wright as my art teacher was a profound positive influence! Her Christian tutelage was a joy and a blessing.   The enthusiasm with which she approaches art and teaching is inspirational. Some assignments may have been tough, but they have made me a more confident artist, and I can now better use my art as a gift for others. She was an answer to prayer for my art education!” ~ Caroline D., 17; Drawing I and II
