Testimonials

Hear what some of our students have to say.

Amy, Age 38

Coon Rapids, MN

“I learned an amazing amount of information is this class! Kris did a wonderful job teaching me how to relax and enjoy drawing, rather than trying so hard to make everything look perfect. I am a perfectionist and drawing has always been challenging for me. I can honestly say that I feel that I have learned the skills and gained the confidence to successfully draw just about anything!”

Jen, Age 49

Plymouth, MN

"We met this amazing woman at an MCGT event where our daughter took a class with her. What a wonderful find she is!!!!!! Her insight into our daughter's processing and suggestions for opportunities directly led us to the school district program. While we tried other classes there, as well, Kris' classes remained the most impactful for our daughter who has atypical educational needs. Not only is Kris an amazing artist and gifted teacher, she is an exhorter and encourager that definitely has had a wonderful impact on out daughter! If have the opportunity to do the same, jump on it!!” 

Mary Beth, Age 53

Eden Prairie, MN

“ I liked everything about this class, especially the art instructor! Kris is so talented and her enthusiasm is contagious – makes learning how to draw so much more fun! You can tell she really loves her job! Plus, I like how all of the art supplies were included in the class fee – perfect!” 

Michael, Age 14

Maple Grove, MN

“I had a lot of fun in Mrs. H.’s class! We got to learn how to make a cool sculpture out of duct tape. I like the way my sculpture turned out and I would like to take more classes from Mrs. H.” 

Paul, Age 65

Champlin, MN

“I have certainly enjoyed learning new drawing and painting techniques from Kris! I appreciate that she was patient and encouraging. She definitely made learning fun - great sense of humor! I would highly recommend Kris' classes to anyone that is looking for a fantastic instructor!”

Gloria Age 71

Minnetonka, MN

“Kris is a wonderful teacher!  She was very patient and kept encouraging me throughout the class. I like her style of teaching – she makes learning fun! I really enjoyed drawing and can’t believe I actually drew something that looked realistic!” 

Linda, Age 44

St. Michael, MN

“I have taken many art classes, but many of the instructors seem to teach step-by-step instructions and every student uses the same picture as a guide. I like how Kris allows us to use our own picture! She not only taught us how to draw the picture, prior to painting it, she also taught us how to mix the paints, which I really enjoyed. She also taught us many different ways to apply our paints on the canvas. What a fun class!”

Mason, Age 8

Orono, MN

“I had a lot of fun in this class! Mrs. H. taught me how to draw upside-down and I did a really good job on my picture! I think I can draw really good now!” 

Mila, Age 10

Plymouth, MN

“I love that Mrs. H. is my art teacher! She is a really, really nice teacher and she doesn't get upset if I make mistakes on my picture. She says that mistakes are okay. She teaches me different ways that I can draw and I like that."

Ruth, Age 52

Brooklyn Park, MN

“I am so glad that I signed up for this class! Not only did Kris teach me how to successfully paint, she is open to her students contacting her with any art-related questions. How nice is that? I will definitely register for more of Kris’ upcoming classes – what a great instructor!”
