testimonials:

“I can’t recommend classes with Sandy enough! Her Encaustic class has easily made Wednesdays my favorite day of the week. It’s funny that I was worried I’d be intimidated by her tremendous talent, but I wound up finding the exact opposite. Sandy is so supportive and encouraging (no matter what the level of her students), and she creates a great environment of playfulness and experimentation. I encourage anyone looking to rekindle that creative spark to try one of her classes.”

“ This was a great first encounter with encaustic mixed media and at SD Studios. It was a great experience and I will definitely return. I encourage anyone who is considering taking a class to do so. Sandra provides the supplies and the environment is comfortable. You work at your own pace. ”

“ Great, I recommend it for new and experienced and I between artists! ”

“Sandy is great with all skill levels and interests. My daughter learned to paint through private lessons and I have loved learning new skills like encaustic and mixed media art. We both look forward to what each new lesson brings!”
