“Jane returned for the second time to provide us with her expertise in colour and expression with water colours. She engaged our most reluctant ‘artists’ to perform and had the enthusiastic students busy with differing techniques. She was very generous with her talent.” Liane Langton, Youth Worker – Take a Hike Program

“I had nothing but positive comments about our favourite guest artist !!! The Pictures.. were part of our display for the student-led conferences. My class thinks [Jane] rocks!” Mrs. Kaga, Grade Two Teacher.


“The participants rated the programs as “very good” to “excellent”. The instructor provided clear directions and worked with each of the students to bring out the best possible work – Surrey School Board”
