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.
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!
Young Artists COVID-19 SAFE PLAN
“So far you guys are doing really well for all those COVID safe measures. Just wanted you to know we feel safe to send kids there and we deeply appreciate this. Please keep up the good work.”
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 so much for all you did in preparation for our daughter’s birthday party. It was a huge success and we appreciate you and your team.
What a lovely surprise to find a birthday gift as well. We will definitely recommend your studio.
Thank you so much for my fantastic art party. All my friends loved it and I thought it was my best party ever.
