“I just wanted to thank you for making these critique videos! They are so phenomenally helpful. I am a junior In high school and I use these videos as guides for what colleges may look for. Since I started watching your videos, I have grown so much and actually put meaning into my work which I lacked before. Every time I see a new video I feel inspired to go out and create! So, genuinely, thank you SO much!”

I have made notes and refer to them often. Its amazing that someone would do much for others and care about each students progress in such a caring way. Thank you thank you and best wishes for all your plans ahead. Loving your posts and the small bits of important points you make in them.”

“I am so grateful for your generosity offering such valuable tools to the public. Finding Art Prof has made a huge difference in my life. It’s a resource unlike any other online and it has inspired me to return to my work after a years of being away from it simply because I had no ‘connection’ to the art world.
