"Stella has not only enjoyed herself but also has learned so much in her art class and has made strides in artistic skills! We are so happy with her art classes. Maria has an incredible ability to convey to children excitement for creating art while training the eye to look and converse about art."

"Throughout my life, art has been one of the greatest things that I could ever wish for. And although many have talent, there's always some room for improvment. I feel like taking this class really helped with anatomy and just technique, and I now realize how much this class helped me to improve. From sketching models to having a really great time, I really think that this class is one of the greatest you can find in New York City."

"My eleven year old insists this is the best camp he's ever done and we've now signed up for the after-school program as well.  Maria offers a great mix of outdoor exploration and indoor appreciation of art, beauty, and fun.  Similarly, she provides art instruction while supporting inner development of her students' ability to appreciate and create artwork. She clearly loves this process and never seems to treat her time with her students as just a job.  She authentically engages with kids and parents, is generous, patient, kind and knowledgable.  On-Site Art helps young New Yorkers experience one of the best parts of living here, amongst wonderful museums and artists such as Maria."

"My 10 year old daughter loved her one week camp with Maria. It was her first time going - which is always a hard sell with her - but she gave it two thumbs up after the first day.

I really like that they get outside as well as visit several great museums and exhibits and have been impressed by the range of techniques Maria exposes them to even in a short session.

I will definitely consider having my daughter return or go to an after-school class!"
