"I just watched your Episode 1 art class video -- such a well done, informative and uplifting 13 minutes! I love it - makes art very, very accessible. You also answered a years' long question - what medium is best for me - gouache !!! It feels so much more natural than acrylic and has the qualities of both watercolor and acrylic - perfect!

You carrying such a lovely quality as you speak - warm, light, clear and so engaged with "us" in the audience. Beautiful. I am signing up.

A few weeks later .... I also thoroughly enjoyed listening to your Episodes 2 and 3. I went to do the color wheel and the four-part painting. What I found wonderful is the way you present. It makes me feel as though I am there with you and the encouragement to do it however it turns out - outside the lines and no "mistakes".

Even though I "know" this approach to learning and even teach it in my own modality - there is something special/invigorating/ different about being led into action with those non-rules in real time. You got me painting Lórien! and that is a feat. Much appreciation and great work!

"The Ms. Eck’s of this world are difficult and rare to find. As an educator, she has gone above and beyond teaching her students the importance of art, which is too often overlooked, and also by encouraging each and every one of them to reach their full potential as individuals. Ms. Eck opened up the doors to a world of color to a world where all of her students, including myself, felt safe and able to express ourselves and not feel judged.”
