    Miss Addie Pierce has a consummate knowledge and pedagogy of art. She is able to break down complex ideas to their simplest forms and created a method that was easy to follow step by step. In her class she taught me how to draw an alpaca. I am terrified of attempting to draw animals, but she was encouraging and modeled the instruction so that it was fool proof. In no time, I was able to go from simple shapes to a complex, living, and breathing alpaca! She gave me the confidence and tools to make me successful with my first attempts at drawing an animal. I highly recommend her class for all age groups if you want to take a stab at doing art in a fun and engaging environment!

    She had an easy to approach atmosphere and provided clear and easy to follow directions. She was also able to keep the mood relaxed with a fun atmosphere about it. Overall a fantastic lesson
