"I just wanted to say how much Cece & Henry get from your lessons. They respond so well to your teaching style, particularly the fact that you are not prescriptive, and they are not expected to do step by step drawing. (I'm sure you know how demoralising that can be for kids when they struggle to get it 'right'.) The positive messaging that you provide is really effective. The reminders about there being no such thing as bad art; the fact that people work at different paces; that it's fine to stick with the first section when the class moves on to the second section; and the encouragement to go off on a tangent if you have a different idea. These may seem like small things, but this holistic approach is so nurturing and provides a great environment for exploring and experimenting. This is the sign of truly great teaching, and I just wanted you to know how valued you are. Have a lovely weekend"
