Parent Testimonials


Time Well Spent

“Our son is now in the 5th grade and has attended after school art classes with Kim Murdock since Kindergarten.

In a world where kids are constantly bombarded with the allure of electronica, this drawing class has been of immense benefit, in our view, particularly as more and more research shows how the use of electronic devices interferes with child brain development.

The classes have provided our son an opportunity to exercise artistic expression and explore his creative side. Moreover, they’ve helped nurture and interest in drawing.”

Art and Writing Camps

"I was very happy to see that you've created this new camp which combines two of my daughter's favorite things - art and writing."  -Carrie, 2014 

"I personally believe that writing ability is very important. So, I am interested in sending my son for more learning about writing. I recommended your art and writing to other moms for summer camp who seems to have similar philosophy. To me, it is important to have such class near where I work. So, something like this at Lemur center is great." -Pilneyo, 2014

"So impressed with the artwork, am definitely going to get one of the horses framed! My son also loved the afternoon writing camp with Ms. Angie!" - Mala, 2014

 "Thank you so much for the wonderful Afterschool Art class. My daughter loved it. I want to enroll her in your summer camps. She loves art and literature actually. So your camps are a great match. -Sreeja, 2014
