Greetings to you wonderfully talented, creative altered book artists! Your teacher shared your work with our Yahoo Altered Book group and I wanted to let you know how delighted I was to see the rich work you're doing! These are amazing first efforts and I hope your fire is lit to continue to explore the depths of this art form. How lucky you are to have a teacher who involves you in this kind of exploration. I wish that I'd been so lucky when I was your age...when I had to 'color' in between the lines! Keep up the great work!

The artwork done by your students is FANTASTIC. I see a lot of Mrs. Kramer's ideas which you have expanded on and made your own. I like the Op Art the best and will have my students try this project. Thanks for sharing your work on the web. You have inspired students in

I enjoyed veiwing your student photography and was referred through the teacher's chat room through the Getty. I am looking for inspiration and would like to know- did your students used digital for the black and white photos?

I really enjoyed what I viewed. The radial designs were very beautifully rendered . The sculptures that I viewed also showed a lot of appreciation by the students in what they were creating. You are doing an excellent job in creating an awareness of art in your students. Linda HAAS Mitrik an OHIO Art Educator

I came across your website by mistake, when I was doing a search for notan artwork. I am a new teacher, and was looking for ideas for my students, and I loved many of the ideas displayed. I was wondering how the woodburn project was taught to the students- I could really see my kids gettin into something like that!

Greetings! I have perused your website and I love the work you do with your students. I have been asked to teach a class of 31, ninth grade Creative Art students. Probably 60% of them chose Art because they did not want to take a second language. Honestly, those 60% did not want Art either, so at times, my art class is a "gong show" of pathetic behaviours and lacklustre effort at best. Your samples looked awesome and I am hoping I can use some of them to produce similar awesome results. Perhaps they will find them as interesting visually as I did. Care to swing "up" to Canada to teach my class?! Can I email you back with some of my students completed work?

Your students' Op Art designs are the best that I have seen on the Internet. This is a lesson that I love to teach but my students have not done as well as yours. Would you mind telling me what medium your students used. Thanks.

I stumbled upon your page while looking for some new ideas. What wonderful art you get from your students! It is truly beautiful and so well done. Their shading and detail is wonderful. I can't get my students to be so detailed. What is your class size? Is art an elective or part of their rotation? I hope to use some of your ideas in my new classes for the next nine weeks.

Originally I was referred to this site to view the Notan, curiosity led me to view the other artwork as well. Glad I took the time to look. The students work is amazing, which leads me to believe that the instructors must be phenomenal. Comments: This is really great stuff. These students should be very proud of themselves. And bravo to the teacher as well. I stand inspired!

I am a grade 7 teacher...I must admit I have used quite a few of your ideas..."surreal rooms" and recently the clothes hanger sculptures. Your students demonstrate incredible talent and I'm sure they enjoyed the art projects as much as my own students. Praises go out to the faculty and students at your school! My students always are WOWED when I share their work from the webpage. Keep it up!

What a massive difference since I went to school. I am probably older than some of the teachers in your school! This site is amazing, I will be showing it to some little friends of mine who love art. How did you mould those beautiful hand sculptures? I hope other schools take some inspiration from the beautiful, fantastic work you have all demonstrated.
