"My drawing class, for me, is what I imagine meditation is like for other people. The class begins and your brain immediately takes you to another place, a zen-like space that’s deeply relaxing, removed from anywhere you’ve been before. What feels like moments later, the class is over and you return home in a new state of calm. It’s a feeling you want to hang onto. Magical.” - Leslie Milrod
"Jennifer is an excellent teacher and managed to connect well with each member of our class. Her communication is clear and was sufficiently simple for our class. Her sense of humour, organization and encouragement were well appreciated." - Alanna Quinn
