"We've enthusiastically signed up for our 4th year with Anita and Studio 1.6 - Alameda, Anita works with the children and their families to find subjects that are stimulating, age/stage appropriate, and just challenging enough. We feel we are getting a well-rounded exposure to Art and Art history for our elementary student.
We've been impressed with Anita's small class size and individual attention.  The classes draw both boys and girls, and Anita encourages individual expression, while teaching good basic techniques. I've loved how each class seems to incorporate a different artistic medium (clay, wire, ink, pencil, collage, pastels, etc!) and yet she does not sacrifice depth to breadth."
