Family from Los Gatos, California

This summer I had the pleasure of doing a lesson with a family from Los Gatos, California. Here are some photos and a comment they sent me recently...

Mike, we can't thank you enough for such a fun and rewarding class. It made quite an impression on everyone in the family and we're still talking about it. It was so gratifying to see the kids open up and try something new, especially our 13-year old son who's a perfectionist tech-type and, thus, felt (previously) no affinity to art. With our varying ages and abilities, you were fantastic at gauging and accommodating our entire family's needs so well. Taking your class and sketching under the Loggia was just what we needed to get off the sightseeing treadmill and really look at the richness around us. Your class was definitely one of the highlights of our trip to Florence! Thank you again!
