What Our Students Are Saying!

"I had put down my art interest for more than two years. I needed something to 'kick-start' it again. I took two classes from Art Verve Academy. They were 'Drawing the Human Head' with Christy Olsen and 'Exploring Watercolor Textures' with Stacy Egan. Both of these classes and their instructors were very, very good and just what I needed to 'kick-start' my art activities again. I would strongly recommend these classes and the Art Verve Academy!!!"

"I've taken several classes from the Art Verve Academy and can't say enough positive things about the instructors! They are encouraging, supportive and knowledgeable."

Serial Art Class Taker

"Want to thank you for great class yesterday, Christy. You have a set of skills that allows students to actively participate as both individuals and as a group, yet you maintain the leadership role. Not an easy thing to do."
