Way to go Michelle!! I am sure they all adored you.


They are lovely and I bet they all have them in pride of place somewhere in their homes :-) well done for investing in their lives and teaching them in their creativity.


Looks like it was a lot of fun - and I love the work that was created during your workshop :)

Girl, you rock, seriously, I'm your new sales marketer in Seattle! I'm gonna tell everyone I know how cool Michelle Allen's art is...ha!

I can't thank you enough for getting me to Artfest and being my awesome roommate. I'm running whatever it takes I'm gonna get er done so we can run together!

Can't wait to get together again!!! xo Tyler

Shelly Massey

LOVED taking your class! You did such an awesome job teaching, and I'm spreading the word! Tyler can take the west coast, and I'll work on the midwest. :) Already looking forward to next year's Artfest and hoping that you're teaching again! -Shelly

Healing Expressions

Congratuations Michelle on pushing through to meet a new goal! You did it and with your own unique style! Looks like it all went just great! They all came up with some really cool designs!


Woohoo! Kudos to you for conquering your fears! Looks like a fun class. I wish we had teaching resources like these in our area. They all seem to be west coast oriented...Hmmmph!
