To Whom it May Concern:

Barbara Steinberg has been our daughter's art instructor for over six years, starting when she was in 5th grade. During that time, she has gone from being an average dabbler to becoming a semi-professional artist with paintings that have shown on multiple islands. Presently, she is doing an Alice in Wonderland series which is truly amazing and which she could not have done without Barbara's professional assistance. We highly recommend Barbara, both for her technical and artistic abilities.

Sincerely, Larry and Arlene Schlesinger

Letter of Recommendation for the Maui Kindness Club

To whom it may concern:

My son Sky has enjoyed water color art sessions with the Maui Kindness Club taught by Barbara Steinberg. he looked forward to going to each class and begged me to go to the class again after the first session of 9 weeks ended. He learned a special animal kindness song and found a great place to talk about his love of animals. The Maui Kindness Club teaches awareness of the native animals of the islands and hose to care for them.
Sky learned new techniques in water color
and in composition. He feels very proud of what he has accomplished in these classes.
Barbara is a great teacher . She emits the kindness that she teaches . You can tell she has a true passion for art and for the animals that are drawn and that rubs off on the children. The classes are affordable with choice of being able to pay per class or all at one time.
There is a special art reception at the end of the completed session , where Barbara displays each child's completed work and really makes each child feel special and like an Artist that they are!
We look forward to enrolling Sky in future classes to come!

Sincerely, Lyn Baldwin
parent of Sky Baldwin
