"I don't write many reviews but sometimes I feel compelled based on a truly fantastic experience.  Anita's studio, "Studio 1.6", is a place for anyone to immerse themselves in an authentic and genuine art experience.  In my case, Studio 1.6 is a place for my teenager to have an hour or so a week of closing off the rest of the world and focusing on something physical, beautiful, and peaceful...making art.  He produces all kinds of wonderful things in this studio.  Anita facilitates his artistic growth in a nurturing way that my teenager really responds to.  He looks so forward to his time in this studio each week.  While sheltering-in-place, Anita has even worked up remote art opportunities that again have my teenager almost zen like for the length of time of the class.  If you are looking for activities for yourself or for a dependent, I'd consider this kind of experience to be priceless.  My son has been taking advantage of the Studio 1.6 space and Anita's beautiful professional instruction/guidance for many years.  It's been a positive influence on his growth and I would recommend to anyone with even a remote interest or curiosity to give it a try.  Can't lose!

"Since taking classes at Studio 1.6, my teenage son has shown significant growth in his drawing abilities. He's always loved to draw, but has been self-taught. Anita has taught him new skills, and moved him beyond his previous comfort zone, tackling portraits, landscapes, still lifes. Studio 1.6 also offers adult classes, which I recently signed up for and am greatly enjoying. I highly recommend Studio 1.6 for any age."
