What are people saying about the Masterpiece Online Academy?
Read how one student described Exploring the World with Pastels:
"I just wanted to let you know how much I appreciate you offering this course this August. I had a great time reinforcing my love of pastels (I have always loved the medium, just never used them; was too afraid to put it to paper, so to speak). Your positive feedback and helpful hints were great! While doing the work was challenging and sometimes upsetting (I struggle with perfectionism), now that class is over I am missing it already!! Thank you again for the wonderful intro to pastels, and I hope that you have a great year." Deb Warren
Read what a homeschool mom has to say about using the Masterpiece Online Academy with her teen daughter...
I just wanted to send my sincerest thanks for making your online courses available. My daughter has blossomed since starting to work with you. She no longer says she "hates" school each day since she has art to look forward to. I'm so thrilled by the quality of the courses and the time you take to respond to each submission. I really appreciate what you are doing.
