    A turkey wonderful workshop! I feel like I learned so much, I was surprised by how quickly the two hours passed. I would have gladly sat through another hour!

    Taking a class with Peggy Is an amazing experience. She truly has a gift for inspiring others and sharing her skills. We learned lots of ways to enhance our lettering and went home ready to create! I highly recommend all of Peggy’s classes.

    This was our second Urban Sketching experience with Peggy. It was wonderful. We loved the Ponce Market location! Peggy makes drawing seem easy. Her explanations are clear and come from her experience as a self-taught artist. I love her emphasis on the process and not the final product. It’s inspiring to have a teacher who can help you embrace your mistakes. Peggy is so down to earth, encouraging, and funny. You’ll feel like she’s an old friend who can help you take your work to the next level! My daughter and I were thrilled to have this opportunity to learn from Peggy. Dianne D.

    I had a great experience at this workshop! Everything I learned I am already incorporating and can’t wait to keep practicing. The supplies we got to keep are DIVINE and have really made a difference in my art.

    The location was airy and bright. There was ample room at each table and I received individualized interaction with the instructor. The take home supplies were quality.

    I loved all the materials we got in this class, and being a newbie in brush lettering, I left the class with Peggy's knowledge, plus, lots of
    practice sheets in the book she supplied. Wonderful class. Thank you Peggy!

    Loved, loved your class! 10/10. I would take another class and hope to do so again. I am artistically challenged, but Peggy made the mysterious approachable and doable. Although my creations looked as if a five-year-old had created them, I had a lot of fun! Looking forward to my next Dabble class, hopefully in the near future.

    This class was really fun! I have done some brush lettering before, but I learned a ton of new things from Peggy. She was fun, engaging, and easy to ask questions to.
