"Jane, in her gentle, observant, aware manner put ALL ..at ease. It was a remarkable break through for me. I have been taking classes with her and painting independently ever since. I have observed her working with experienced professional artists as well as with those who have never held a pastel or anything other than a crayon in their hands before coming to Jane's classes. She seamlessly provides all of these different individual's with just the instruction they need and/or are ready for"...DB
"On Oct 17, 2010, at the Ghost Ranch outside Abiquiu, NM, my wife and I had the distinct pleasure of having one of the best art experiences of our lives.
Local artist and instructor Jane Shoenfeld met us at the designated time and place and proceeded to open our eyes to the wonders of pastels and landscape. The location was a superb venue for plein air instruction. As my wife and I are at different artistic levels, Jane was able to instruct each one of us at our particular level. We found her to be the consummate teacher and professional. We each felt we had opened ourselves to a new medium and had received in such a short time an amazing amount of information. She actually extended the lesson past the 3 hours so that we could reach a point where we could finish our projects by ourselves.
We both agree that our afternoon with Jane was inspiring and was one of the highlights of our trip to Santa Fe. "
