What students say about...

Learning from class, from other students, from ourselves…


Sara helps us learn from one another, sharing risk taking and validation. I can always start over again—virtues of patience and beginner’s mind


Life, process and experience make for a deeper understanding.  How to be still. The value of my work with Sara has brought a new sense of purpose, direction and passion.


Sara’s gift is inspirational.  She is welcoming non judgmental and encouraging of self awareness. She guides you with sensitivity and encourages you to learn from surprises!   -C. Newbern


Learning from the workshop environment…


I love the relaxed but focused atmosphere in these workshops—                        


The space created by Sara and the participants is intimate and warm.  Technique is covered in a natural, organic way—not overly didactic.  Wonderful combination of fun and lightness with serious intention.  This was my very first time working with cold wax and I am in love!

Such a resilient and forgiving medium with unexpected freedom.  I’ll keep working on my own.

I loved seeing other artists’ work and especially Sara’s sharing of your her process, struggles and successes—always infused with a sense of humor.

—D. Ariel


Learning from the masters…


I really appreciate looking at works of established artists, talking about their ideas, process, techniques.  I love the way Sara show us the possibilities, encouraging us to think about artists whose we love, to identify the energies that inspire us and to incorporate those insights into our work.  — G. BonDurant,

Sara’s class is designed with thought provoking ideas and well balanced between art making time and instruction.  I appreciated the short pauses to look at demonstrations and teacher/student responses to works in progress.  —L. Howell
