From Our Families:
- “I cannot praise CMA and Tom Burnett enough for the quality of their online art programs! My 5-year-old son attended a variety of different sessions since the start of the pandemic and all of them have been the highlight of long days spent at home. Tom is great at meeting the kids at their level and has an incredible ability to keep 4- and 5-year-olds engaged for 40 minutes through Zoom”
- “The class has been fantastic and Tom has been an absolute joy to work with. They have explored a wide range of artistic formats and styles in the class and Tom does a great job of guiding them without directing so they can maximize their own creative outlet and have it be in their voice.”
