Our daughter, Margo, started taking art classes at Dragonfly Art Studio in the summer of 2015. She quickly fell in love with creating art. Oceanna introduces a variety of media to her students, and guides their talent. Margo sees Dragonfly as her second home. She is always excited about signing up for a workshop; Margo has done the afternoon programs after school, summer themed weeks, and lastly a sewing workshop. The latter was a gift we didn't know she had! Oceanna informed us immediately of Margo's talent with sewing and we embraced it. We see how it's helped her on so many levels: concentration, completing a project, creativity with patterns, and styles. We're all very excited about this! Thank you!"

Thank you so much for a wonderful class at Dragonfly. It was such a pleasant experience and it was so much fun watching the kids show their parents and explain what they did and why they chose their animal. Both you and your assistant were so great with the kids and everyone really enjoyed themselves! Thanks again and looking forward to working more with you in the future!

My daughter has absolutely loved going to Dragonfly Art. She has taken
summer camp and the weekend holiday crafting and created both wonderful
works of art, as well as enhanced her ability to think. She could craft
before - now she can create! Sewing, beadwork, painting and sculpture have
all been incorporated in to her visual vocabulary. Many thanks to Oceanna
and her creative team! – J. Blanchard

We spent the month of July in Santa Fe – our first visit to Santa Fe – and my two daughters (ages 6 and 8) did two summer camp weeks with Dragonfly Art Studio. The atmosphere that Oceanna creates at her camps is fantastic – her low-stress, happy, collaborative personality sets the tone – every time I walked into the camp, kids were busy and occupied, with a low murmur of activity – everyone was happy and busy and getting along. The girls looked forward to going to camp daily, and begged to stay as long as possible for the ‘free’ time at the end of the day. The only hesitation I have about writing a review indicating how outstanding the camps and Oceanna as the leader are, is that I worry it will be hard to get into the camps next year! — Audrey S.

The framer of my five-year-old daughter's self portrait (created under Oceanna's guidance) commented that she would be very pleased if her adult students produced a sketch with such proportion and shading. I'm not kidding! Oceanna has cultivated an envious talent in a little girl, who by the way adores her! —Jennifer Biedscheid

Thank you so much for putting together the art show. It was so much fun and amazing to see all the wonderful art. We appreciate all the hard work you put into it. The kids have learned so much over the semester and have such a sense of accomplishment. Its been a fantastic opportunity for Sydney and she has looked forward to it every week. You make a big difference in these kids lives and the guidance and instruction you give them will influence them in great ways in whatever they do in the future. You totally rock! — A. Wiford

I am the grandmother of a 9 year old who lives in Taos. For the past two summers I have
enrolled my granddaughter at the Dragonfly Studio summer program. The first year was so successful I enrolled her in two programs last summer. Grace enjoyed every class - one of her choices was 'sewing class' and after five days was able to operate a sewing
machine by herself. Then she asked to have my old sewing machine which I gave her and she is off and running making things - first a little jacket for her lap dog. I highly recommend this program for any child - Oceanna and her staff create a very organized and unique program each week and also create a very wonderful relaxed atmosphere where each child is encouraged to work independently and experience her own empowerment. — Bari Lovewave

Last year, My daughter said that art was her favorite class at her school. But this year she doesn't like it anymore. She says they always do the same thing. But she lover your class and always looks forward to it. Thank you for making art engaging and fun! —Carla

"Oceanna has enriched the visual world of my children, exposing them to folk art from other cultures, materials that we had previously regarded as trash and techniques I would have incorrectly deemed not quite age appropriate. She does all of this with a sense of fun, a zest for experimentation, boundless enthusiasm, creativity, talent, and energy. I find myself jealous of my children for the experiences they have with her and the projects they create. There are people in life who are doing exactly what they should be doing. Oceanna is one of them. You could just see that she is having as much fun as they are and loves art, teaching and children." — Arlyn Nathan

"My granddaughter Emma LIVES for her art class with Oceanna. She has learned more in these classes than high school students learned in home ec and art class combined when I was a student. She makes them think and have fun at the same time. What a great investment!" —Jacque Dawson

"Thank you very much for Max's first week of summer camp. He is very proud of his work. You are a wonderful art teacher and Max really enjoys class. He came home and showed us his work. He loves the Rothko work with pastels and I think he is proud of his work. How exciting to be able to explore the various media for art. You have opened our eyes!" —Kate Leriche

"Our daughter's talents have flourished under Oceanna's direction: she has instilled a love for the aesthetic in our child and the other children in her program. She is a gifted art teacher; her enthusiasm and dedication are palpable when we come to pick up our child from her weekly art adventure!" — K. Geetha and R. Amos Holdsworth

"The past Art Show was the best one yet. The kids in all different age groups did such interesting things and did such a good job on them! You could really see how your method of teaching develops the kids' own personal artistic expression." — Janette Fischer
