She especially appreciates Miss Mariana’s attention to detail in technique and how she offers small but impactful tips on improving artistry. Twilight also appreciates how Miss Linda is always pushing her students very hard, as she knows all of them very well, and understands how to bring out their best. Twlight always has fun in Mr. David’s classes too!
