“I heard about Vickie Marsango's classes from other fellow art students who had taken her classes. They said take whatever she is teaching. They pointed me in the right direction. I am just finishing up my second series of classes in creative painting at Vero Beach Museum of Art. I find that Vickie is very generous with her information/knowledge, challenges you in a good way, encourages play, is always prepared and has a great way of encouraging those in her classes. Her demonstrations and sent videos on relevant artists all help to enrich the creative learning experience. I look forward to taking another series of classes in the fall.”
