    Ms. Mcnamee, is not only a gifted and talented artist, she is an amazing teacher as well. She freely shared techniques to help me pursue my love of art. She challenged my thinking in a very caring and gentle way while guiding me to discover new ways to approach working with various mediums. She was excellent working with both professionals and beginners. I can not recommend her any more highly! Do NOT hesitate in taking a class - it will make you better!!!
