Hearing good feed back from parents when they stop me in Toys R Us and take the time to thank me for changing their daughter's life or send me an email telling me that the they didn't realize that their daughter listened and learned so much until she starts doing things I taught her... And from students.... This week a student said that she is using the grid technique on everything now and it has helped her tremendously. And another student said that she has improved and grown so much since taking my classes. Or when a student is excited because it was their first portrait and they didn't know they could do it so well.
