My daughter loves the Fun Fantasy Sculpture class with Ricki. Ricki is so creative and has such a lovely teaching approach with the kids. Goes out of her way to make the class interesting and fun. My daughter has felt very proud of the beautiful things she has made. Thank you estuary arts for providing wonderful learning opportunities for kids. :) Andrea Louw
