    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. ;)

    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.

    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!!
