As Director of First Presbyterian Church Preschool, I want to express our appreciation of the Wee Little Arts extra-curricular program at our preschool. The art is exciting and fun for the children here (ages 3-5), and they learn an appreciation of art as well as the process of art’s many genres. Miss Barbie inspires and encourages all the children, and their art products are phenomenal. Our hallways are always beautiful, colorful and bold, as parents and children walk through. I always hear parents expressing their amazement at the art displays. We love having Wee Little Arts as part of our program.

Ms. Barbie Brannock is our Wee Little Arts Teacher. I have come to know Ms. Barbie this school year. I am very impressed with the program she offers. The children are very excited to attend, Ms. Barbie keeps them engaged in conversations regarding the topic for the week as well as general conversation that the children are excited to talk with her about. She not only has a project for them to to work on but also teaches them about the method. The children love the books she brings along. The end results are amazing – all the children add their own individual touch and therefore all are a little different even though they are all working on the “same project” Thank you Ms. Barbie.

Thank you for all your hard work with Little School! The parents have been so impressed with what their children have learned. I have told Rebecca Burton about you and said of all of our programs that yours is the one that has to stay because there is no one as far as we are concerned that can teach art to children as well as you. I hope we get an opportunity to work together in the future!!

Carson truly enjoyed your session and is still teaching me about horizon lines and warm and cool colors. I am also appreciative that you taught her how to focus on coloring in the whole page (most of her earlier work lacked a “finished” quality ). Thanks again and please let us know when/where you might be teaching in the future

I am so very impressed by your art program for young children! In my twenty-seven years as a preschool and kindergarten teacher, art has always been a very important part of my teaching. I believe that children’s art should be that-not teacher touched up and perfected. You have a very pure method of making children aware of the various mediums and techniques, but allowing them to express themselves and take pride in the work. I think your inclusion of art history and appreciation is a valuable part of your program.
Wee Little Arts, offers our children a great enrichment program that is age appropriate, fun, and educational.
