I wanted to say, again, thank you for the Summer program for young people. 
Cora was one of those single kids who had been working in virtual isolation from her home. It was a great experience for her and the beach adjacent location was an added bonus.
From member Carol Kaufman in regards to her granddaughter who attended a children’s class taught by Donna McCarthy.

…I thank Cindy for a wonderful Zoom class and I learned a lot about myself through this journey as I am sure we all did. The one thing I would love to do, if anyone is interested, is to maybe continue to meet through Zoom and have open discussions about our photography….
There were so many points of discussion that her class brought up and I think as a group we have so much knowledge to share between us.
From member Sandra King in regards to Cindy Wilson’s Metaphor in Photography class which was taught online. Because of this class and the interest it generated, the Wickford Photo Arts group will now be having monthly discussion groups online.

Dear Felicia and Trish,
I just wanted to say thank you for offering this Critique Class via Zoom. As a beginner painter, I was a little apprehensive to take this class and put myself out there to be judged not only by you but by the other artists in the class. I am happy to report it was a very positive experience. I learned so much not only from your critiques of my work, but from the critiques of my fellow artists’ pieces as well.
This type of class, in my opinion, lends itself perfectly to the new digital, social distancing world we now find ourselves in. I truly hope this will become a class you offer regularly, even when things do get back to normal. It definitely got me back in front of the canvas and the weekly feedback was very motivating.
From Marisa Lonkart who became a member and has since taken 2 plein air classes at WAA after taking this online critique class.
