• “I began taking Edna’s classes over 3 over years ago with only limited charcoal-drawing experience. Since then, I have expanded to oil and acrylic paintings and have recently begun incorporating pastels into my painting. I have even submitted some of my own work for local shows! Edna’s artistic coaching and encouragement has really attributed to my successful, creative development as an artist. She is always actively promoting her students to further develop their skills with new mediums, new subjects, and new opportunities. She promotes local art with her First Friday events, and is always encouraging her students to submit work for shows. Edna is an amazing teacher, artist and person! Thank you Edna!” ~ Mandy Ghetti
  • “Edna, your ability to teach is beyond reproach. You have great skills in articulating your knowledge. I will benefit greatly from the seven weeks we spend together in class.” ~ Eddie Patelson
  • “The painting class is a very moving experience for those who know there’s more inside of them to be expressed in the venue of art. I am amazed at the beauty within that has shone in each member of the class through their paintings. Edna Dapo is such an inspiration! Thanks Edna!” ~ Jerry Foster-Pitts
