Dear Garri,

I just want to thank you for the class yesterday. The piece you helped them produce is gorgeous. Rainer had a great time, and is very proud of what she learned. I know that the kids get exposed all year to art instruction, but the materials you have introduced are unusual and engage a lot of their senses.

Thanks for creating the opportunity.
Looking forward for the next classes,
