 Reference Letters
 
I most strongly recommend Elizabeth Salim as an art instructor.  Having recently moved to the Richmond area in late summer 2009, we needed to find an art teacher for our 13-year-old daughter.   Elizabeth came highly recommended as an outstanding teacher, and over the last two years she has exceeded our expectations and those of our daughter.
 
Elizabeth’s combined talents as a gifted artist and instructor have provided our daughter with an excellent foundation in drawing.   Encouraging, patient, and committed, she consistently provides an honest critique of our daughter’s work and often takes extra time to thoroughly explain the steps required to complete a project.
