    The Renaissance Art Academy is a wonderful venue for children to explore their individual creativity and open their minds to endless possibilities of expression with shapes, colors and perceptions. Ms. Cross expertly encourages each student to choose their own subject, the scene to sketch and the colors they envision for their piece. As a retired private music teacher, I know what it is to have a studio filled with students eager to learn. In Ms. Cross' class, the student is the one creating the art----she teaches and guides, but allows each individual to create their own picture. Amazingly, it all comes together and you have a piece that truly belongs to the student. My granddaughter was so pleased with her first picture; she repeatedly said, "I did it myself! I didn't know I could!!!" [age 11] What a fantastic, fun way to build self-confidence and learn something that will remain with you for the rest of your life!!! Ms. Cross loves art and sharing her knowledge with great enthusiasm---and yes, it is contagious! "BRAVO" to Ms. Cross and all her students!!!

    My daughter has an anxiety disorder and very shy. She is a new student and in her short time at the academy she has blossomed! Not only she discovering and embracing a new talent, but she is gaining self-confidence. I can drop her off and 1.5 hours later she is a smiling and happy child! To top it off, I can see her masterpiece in progress each week. Mrs. Cross can immediately verbalized what new skills were taught at the end of each session. She individualizes her approach with each student. This academy is a gem, and I encourage you to allow your child to experience this safe and loving environment.
