    Student and parent feedback

    “It is a great course and it gives me the freedom to draw whatever I want with proper materials and equipment. I am happy with the length, it gives me enough time to finish or start a project. I think that the studio has the right materials and I never have seen the students asking Marco if he has something and he has said no. Monday has become my favourite day of the week.” – Amelia, 2019

    “Coco loves this class with Marco.  He is a patient and skillful arts teacher.  We are very glad that we found this art class.”- Pearl, 2018

    “We recommend the course very much. Marco is a very good teacher. He inspires the students and teaches fundamental skills, also a very good communicator with kids and parents.  We are very happy about the course.” – Yuki, Dec 2016
