We want you to know that we were so happy with the kite workshop you presented at the Library this summer.
This workshop was actually the first activity in our line-up to be “sold out”, so I think expectations were high. You did not disappoint!
The kites were very good quality and the children loved decorating them. Taking the kids outside for a group photo was a terrific way to end the event.
It was a lovely afternoon.
Les cours de Deirdre sont fantastique, mon garçon à toujours hâte au prochain.
Ma fille adore tous les projets variés que Deirdre leur proposent car ils sont originaux et elle laisse travailler chaque enfant dans sa créativité, cela donne de très beaux résultats !
My daughter ADORES her classes with Deirdre! Highlight of her week. Love that Deirdre shows them all sorts of different styles and mediums and allows them to explore!
My daughter adores Deirdre and her art classes! She looks forward to going all week!
Just went to paint with the famous Deirdre at Cafexo and I had the loveliest time!! She is such an amazing teacher and I can’t wait to do another class with her. If you haven’t tried painting by the water..I highly recommend!! Thank you so much again Deirdre!!
We had the pleasure of welcoming local artist Deirdre Potash to the Nook. Deirdre is behind ArtWill Studio and she does art programs in schools all over the area in addition to her own private classes. She had 20-something kids around that table, ranging in ages from three-years-old to thirteen-years-old, and she pulled off a beautiful and fun project that engaged every single one of them. They worked with plasticine to create medallions. Zahra chose to represent the power of wind on her medallion, and Noah (who normally shies away from art) created a beautiful fire medallion. It was entirely good fortune that just last Monday, I had read Barbara Reid’s The Party to our story time group. Reid’s books are favourites in our house, including The Subway Mouse, Fox Walked Alone, and Perfect Snow. The author makes all her illustrations with plasticine. It was fun for the kids to work with it themselves.
I got to express my creativity in a new way, just for the fun of it, in a relaxing environment with awesome people.
Art truly feels good. Thank you Deirdre!
