Past Student Reviews:

“Knowledgeable, engaging, resourceful. I would take this class again because I enjoyed it so much.”

“Elaine is an excellent teacher. Her instructions are clear and easy to follow. Her demonstrations were wonderful. She is encouraging. And the collage was fun. The materials she sent along were a terrific bonus. Now I can make more collages without having to search all over for the needed materials.”

“Elaine was enthusiastic about her topic of instruction – it is clear that she loves doing this work and shared her love with her students.” 

"I've probably taken 25+ online classes this past year... I would rate Elaine in the top three of all the teachers I have had this past year. All in all, a great class."
