Sandy`s Art Studio for Children & Teens
was featured in the magazine `STUDIOS` by Interveaverly Press in the Summer 2012 edition!
“The importance in an engaging group art program is that children feel comfortable enough to give helpful critique and share critical thinking in the art process with the instructor and their peers. This creates self-confidence and paves the way to a deeper understanding of visual Art and the elements of design. Moreover, working with each other in teams is the connection between science and art –or- the place where the best ideas are born.”                   ~ Sandy Reid
