Hi Ms Blatchford, or perhaps I should address you as Jane,

I am not sure if you remember me, I was one of your year 9 art students at OLSH.

Throughout my life many events have occurred but I have never forgotten how much you helped me in pursuing my dreams in the art field.

My friends are so intrigued by my talents and I always remember how you have helped me.

During a parent teacher interview, you spoke to my parents about how strongly you felt that I should continue in art learning.  After that day, I have continued the path.  Although it wasn’t smooth sailing I am on the right track now.

I just wanted to thank you very much for speaking up as a teacher to my parents.  I know not all teachers would take an extra step but you did.

I really would hope to meet you again and catch up on some Art talk.  Thanks to social media, I found you through LinkedIn, I know you have established a Young Artists business and must be really busy with your schedule.  I sincerely do hope we could meet again.

Please excuse me for sending you this letter via your work email.  Hope this is alright with you.

Warm regards,

Hi Jane,

We really appreciate all the help and guidelines received from you and your team. Both Arnika & Dahmon are really enjoying the class and  you can definitely tell there has been a major improvement in their art works. We also believe it has helped a lot in their general lifestyle; they are happier, healthier and have a very good overall mental health.

Dear Jane,

The time I’ve spent at your school has helped me immensely as I have developed my art skills. I have always loved attending this school with it’s kind and insightful teachers, and will never forget all it has taught me after I leave 9 and ¾ years later.

Thank you for everything,


Hi Jane,

Just a quick note of thanks…  My daughter Aleksia has attended a few school holiday workshops, and I wanted to let you know of the amazing transformations I’ve noticed in her since your classes.

Aleksia loves attending your Art School and I believe this is the highlight of her week.  Her confidence has increased, not only in her creativity, but is also reflected in other areas of her personal life.  She no longer leans on me for inspiration or ideas about what to draw or make, it now flows to her innately.  I’ve noticed that her thinking has broadened and her imagination has no limitations.  Her little ‘surprise’ notes and cards she makes for me and hides in my handbag or on my pillow are priceless, and is something she has initiated over the past few months now that her creativity is flowing abundantly.  I’ve watched you teach not only Aleksia but also the other children in your School.  Whilst your experience and skill are invaluable, it’s your ability to inspire your students to tap into their own individual creativity in a caring and safe environment, for each child to express their own personal creativity.

I’m extremely grateful to you Jane for the passion you bring to your School and the desire for success you hold for your students.  Your Art School comes with my highest recommendation!

Kind regards,
Dee Wiener

Dear Jane,

Thank you so much for the wonderful time I’ve had at Young Artists! I’m really sad that I’m leaving, but I’ll always have great memories of my time here from Kindergarten to Year 10. Thank you for being the most patient and kind art teacher, I have learnt so much over the past 11 years and I will make sure to keep creating artworks.

I hope you have fun teaching my little brother, he is already very excited!

Best wishes,


Dear Jane,

I wanted to say how much my daughter loves learning painting, drawing and pottery in your pre-school class. After much research, we found your school to offer the best qualified teachers with enriching course content for all ages.

We greatly appreciate the light filled rooms, which are well equipped with wonderful inspiring artwork completed by your advanced older students. Very impressed with the accolades and awards that your long time students have achieved e.g. Young Archibald Prize.

You are so nurturing with your students, that the children are so calmly creative, completing wonderful art work in such a short time.

Learning art is a lovely companion to all the sporting physical activity in our week. It is developing her creativity and confidence, that we know your school will support in years to come. We find your art class to be a highlight of the week!

Thank you!
