Siska O.: “My daughter loved learning about different art techniques and creating her own masterpeices during “Adventurs in Color”. Tuesdays were much more fun since she knew the schoolday would end on a creative, colorful note! The course also inspired her to draw and paint at home more often.”

Lou: “Lila had a wonderful time in Mandar’s ‘Adventures in Watercolor’ art class. She created some fantastic pieces that she is very proud of. In Lila’s own words “I really liked the class. I enjoyed the painting and want to be an artist when I grow up!” Mandar is a warm and talented teacher and an accomplished artist who really engages with the Children. The class is fun and I would recommend it for any budding young artist! Cheers!”

Liz S.: Ryan loved Mandar’s ‘Adventures in Clay’ class. He had a ton of fun and was very proud of his work. He often came home planning to give gifts of his creations, only to later decide he liked them too much and keep them for himself. Mandar created a warm and inspiring environment.

Catherine: “We love Mandar’s art classes! Our kinder and second grader took Mandar’s painting and sculpture classes and had a blast. He does such a great job of supporting the kids’ natural enthusiasm for the creative process. He’s also very flexible about catering to each child’s individual interests. Our younger daughter didn’t want to work with the clay, so Mandar kindly allowed her to be a “helper” and even encouraged her to draw alongside the other students. We arrived every afternoon to find a room full of happy kids who were excited to show off their work and explain what they’d learned. Mandar’s experience as both an artist and a parent really shows in the joy he sparks in kids of all ages. Thank you, Mandar! We’re already looking forward to being back in the fall.”

Jill F: “My son had so much fun in the Painting and Clay classes. He brought home a great variety of projects and even taught me some techniques! Mandar was absolutely fabulous with the group of kids and offers such valuable hands-on exposure to the arts. Both my son and I recommend these classes to anyone looking for some artful fun! Looking forward to the next enrollment!” – mom to a happy kindergartner 2019″
