Our three children - now ages 9, 7, and 5 - have all had the wonderful opportunity to learn from and with Scribble for most of their lives. We took our first Scribble art class when our eldest was about 18 months old, and I remember being captivated by Sasha's warm, personable, direct connection with the children. She, like the rest of the Scribble teachers, speaks to the children as people, never speaking down to them like "babies", and makes each child feel valued as an artist and empowered with a new means of expression -- art. It has been a joy for me to see each of my children experiment with and discover their own voice as artists, and all three continue to thrive in Scribble programming even today. Julianne is an absolute gift -- her enthusiasm for her projects is contagious and is matched by her deep commitment to the students. She creates a warm, safe environment in which our children can play and learn, and we feel very lucky to have her in our children's lives. We are incredibly grateful to and for the wonderful staff at the Inwood Scribble Art Studio.
