promoting your workshops to my colleagues at school as well as through the

of any level. Everything I hoped to learn in this class was delivered. I
had such a pleasant and satisfying experience. Thank You, JD Hillberry-
it was great!"
"The workshop was wonderful! Full
of great information and with a light heartedness in the classroom. I
loved learning the new techniques and having an opportunity to practice
them with JD's personal, friendly guidance. Not only is JD's work
inspiring, but also the way he engages the students and shows interest
in their development as an artist."
