“We were amazed with how much excitement and joy Ayu anticipated each day of the Clay and Canvas Camp and about the quality of her work – very different than what she has been able to do before at home with kids’ drawing and molding supplies. The reason for this seems to be a mixture of using real clay and art materials together with subtle creative and expert technical support by Leonie in a happy environment with other children working on their art projects. We also loved that they went outside whenever the weather was nice to paint something inspired by nature.” ~ Beatrice Boehmer, Spring 2010
“We were very impressed with the large amount of clay pieces as well as stepping stone and 6 canvas painting that our daughter Kaya produced at Leonie’s camp this summer. But it wasn’t just the pure amount of art pieces that impressed us but indeed the stories and experiences that had settle in Kaya while doing the art work or while being encouraged by Leonie to try a certain thing out. We are all looking at these pieces in a special light and when many of them will be gifted for Hanukkah and Christmas this year they will be accompanied with these stories. We will definitely be coming back!” ~ Line Morkbak, 2009
“Art Clay Camp was so much fun for my daughter that she begged for a second week of it! Leonie and Steve are delightful and pay just the right kind of attention to children to bring out the best of their own individual creativity! Felicia grew from her time with them.” ~ Sarah Strand, 2008
“Clay camp rocks!” ~ Melissa Ivan, 2010
