"Your class, Sandy, is money well spent because, not only are you a celebrated artist, you are an excellent teacher. You are well prepared. You explain techniques. You have lesson plans to lead your students toward adding skills on top of the
foundation you have given. And you always follow up with kind and direct criticism, direction and encouragement."
"I've been using the inks for years, yet I find new inspiration and techniques in every lesson!"
"This course has been a jump start for me. I'm connecting with my creative muse again, thank you Sandy!"
"Your inspiration throughout this course has been remarkable! Moved me to tears today."
"I appreciate the personalized feedback and helpful suggestions that you provide."
"You've covered so many different methods and clarified so many questions in this workshop.
Thanks for all your tips and tricks for controlling the inks. I'm getting better results than ever before!"
"I have taken other online classes, but feel that you are so much more analytical and patient.
This is my favorite of the classes I have taken."
"I didn't know very much about alcohol inks and had never even taken a real art class before,
let alone an online one! And, believe me, I am not computer savvy at all! Yet, I am finding
Sandy's e-course has expanded my horizons on many levels."
"It’s so good that these classes are lifelong. I rewatched one that I had seen a few months ago and
it really helped. I think when we first watch and do, we are so concentrating so hard to complete the lesson.
Then later, when we want to incorporate a skill from the lesson, we forget certain parts.
Then when we go back to recover the skill, it’s for a different reason. So very helpful!"

"Just can't believe I have been doing the course for a year already. It's been such fun and I recommend it to everyone who thinks they are not artistic enough. Sandy makes it easy and fun.....there is no pressure...proceed at your own pace...I just took out a few of my first "tries" at tiles and they are on display on my mantel. A year later, I 'm impressed with how far I have come in comparing them to the new Yupo paintings on my work station. Guided practice does work wonders!"
"Being a complete novice (aside from many years ago in high school), it was great to have a sound foundation of "basics",
- re: drawing, color, shape, value, composition, etc. to help segue into the actual art work."
"I am planning to fill in some dull winter days going through each lesson and doing the examples you provided!"
"I am not very good on the computer and I was concerned because I'd never done anything like this before. I quickly found the website informative and user friendly. The whole experience has been even better than I thought;
very fun and stress free."
"I have been using alcohol inks for years, but you showed me some tips and tricks I had not tried before. I now use them
quite often and I feel that they (and all the other information) has really enhanced my alcohol ink artwork."
"I am taking the September E-Course now and really love it! I am only on week two, but plan on catching up this winter.
My family and I are pitching in and buying the January course for my mom. I know she will be thrilled with it!"
"Thank you Sandy, I was thinking today how blessed we are to have you in our lives.
What wonderful creators we are to have manifested the perfect art teacher and friend."
"Time flies when we are so focused on our art! Never enough time. So grateful that you are willing to share your talents."
"It is extremely simple to navigate the LLC website and the lessons are very easy for me to digest."
“It is easy to live for others, everybody does. I call on you today to live for yourself.”
"Your course got me over my funk and back to loving the inks again. It reminded me that
I don't need to be so hard on myself and to just enjoy the process!"
"Although I am far from finished and have far to go, I want to thank you Sandy for your help and effort
in putting out this class."
I am sure I'm not alone in these thoughts. Please continue to help us grow as artists and human beings."
"Thank you Sandy, I'm really having FUN creating art again, for the first time, in a very long while!"
"This course helped me to understand the difference between a good painting and a fabulous one.
Nobody ever explained the structure (the elements and principles) of a painting to me before.
I now have a much better foundation for personal growth and development, thank you Sandy!"
"I thought the course was going to be too basic; however, after week two, I realized that sometimes it's
necessary to go back to the basics; because it was at that time of discovery, a long time ago,
that I was having the best time with the inks."
"You are a great teacher, my dear Sandy. This course is very well thought through."
"I am always looking forward to see your videos!
I re-watch them a few times. So inspiring and also so calming."
"Your continual guidance through the facebook group is something I have not experienced before. All the other
instructors I have taken classes from, stop being there for you after all the course material has been delivered."
