    We had an excellent class with Norma! She is an awesome teacher, was so patient and helpful, and really makes it fun for anybody to jump into mosaics as a beginner or higher level. She even opened up a new class time when we couldn't make any of the existing ones work. Thanks, Norma!!

    Had so much fun creating my mosaic. There were so many different options that we could do and the teacher encouraged everyone to be creative. Norma was very welcoming and I had a great time.

    The class was so much fun. My girlfriend and I both created Chicago flags yet both look different. The instructor was so helpful and gave us a lot of freedom to really create something personally expressive. PS - Choose the black grout. ;)

    I saw this class online but it was full. I emailed the instructor to see when the next time it would be offered and she opened up two spots-one for me and one for my daughter. We had a lot of fun and I think what we made was pretty cool considering we aren't very artsy people. The instructor was extremely nice and did everything she could to make us feel welcome and feel like artists. At first, I was a little disappointed to see our Chicago flag was only 5 x7 inches, it never said on the site what size but for some reason, we thought it was bigger. We quickly learned that doing mosaics is time-consuming and were actually so happy it was the size it was. I have a new appreciation for the art. I would highly recommend this class and this instructor.
