Jordyn signed up for art lessons at our studios in 2011 and became a fabulous student. Her drawing skills and painting ability showed signs of a budding instructor. The studio decided to train her to instruct our Art Angels in drawing and primary painting in acrylics.
She is now our Junior Art Instructor and is doing a great job. Well done Jordyn!
