Praise for Christine's library programs:

"I received many wonderful comments from people in person and then this morning was greeted with an email from another very happy customer who asked that we continue to offer adult classes with you as the instructor."
--Ellen Bassett, Cook Memorial Public Library

"Once again, it was wonderful to have you come to our community and bring your excellent and entertaining art instruction to the children and parents. Your programs are always so enjoyable. The children get so much out of the PowerPoint presentations and the opportunities to do the artwork themselves!"  --Nancy Sauer, Fountaindale Public Library

"Thank you for an educational and entertaining Tangle class yesterday! You received many verbal compliments when the class was over and the written comments were all positive with high marks for the presentation."  --Nancy Brothers, Morton Grove Public Library

"You really have your finger on the pulse of what libraries need!  Keep up the excellent programming!
--Jenna Melberg, Lake Villa District Library

"Thank you for both the unique programming and for Ms. Thornton as an instructor... Her knowledge, gentle instruction and encouragement increased my drawing skills within the evening's program."
--Louise Mason, patron of Aspen Drive Library


"This program really captured their imagination and it was great to see them caught up in the project. Thanks again for all you do to keep art alive. I look forward to working with you again."
--Pat Roche, Carol Stream Public Library

"Thank you for once again presenting an exciting and successful program at the MPPL.... I look forward to working with you again!" --Erin Emerick, Mt. Prospect Public Library

"It is a pleasure to work with a presenter who comes prepared, delivers an exceptional program and connects so well with her audience. I am highly recommending Christine to other Libraries through my programmers network."  --Terri Campbell, Prospect Heights Library

"Thanks again for the wonderful workshops on Saturday!  We received so many positive comments from parents!  The pictures the children drew during the workshops were really wonderful." --Jan Hastings, Cook Memorial Library

"The class was great.  The kids had fun and were amazed at what they could draw. The parents too!"
--Rose Johnson, Indian Trails Library
