There is nothing better than being around someone like Bev, the most enthusiastic teacher I’ve been around. I don’t think “no” is in her vocabulary! She took ideas and made them realities. Whether it was splatter painted wine glasses or snowmen. She showed us ways to make our dreams a reality, teaching us techniques to make it easier.”Check out the outstanding reviews and photos here.
