What Our Students Are Saying!

"Thank you for 'Portraits in Pastel' course. It is very helpful to have you participate actively in the class & share the steps you take in your drawings. Looking forward to taking another course!"

Student from Portraits in Pastel

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

Student from Drawing Facial Features

"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 & their instructors were very, very good & just what I needed to 'kick-start' my art activities again. I would strongly recommend these classes & the Art Verve Academy!!!"
