“As an art student of Tracy Witelson for some of my childhood, all of my adolescence and the beginning of my adult life, I have no doubt of the positive impact her teaching has had on my life. I find the environment of her art classes to be creative and supportive, and her guidance to allow for constructive direction as well as freedom to experiment in one’s artworks. These art classes have been an enriching experience, and I look forward to many, many more.”
