“Everyone can do art. Everyone is creative, and Audrey’s and Barbara’s gentle urging generates a freedom in participants to let loose and express themselves in a warm, inviting, encouraging environment.”

- Lindsay Whiting from her book Living into Art, Journeys through Collage

“My experiences in their class literally changed my entire outlook on life. Their nurturing spirits opened a door to a journey of self -exploration that continues 15 years later. The opportunities offered through collage are endless, and can reflect, in a poetically exaggerated way, our idiosyncrasies, foibles and individuality.”

-Kirk Hinshaw, President, Arts Guild of Sonoma
