"Joy is a wonderful teacher! Her class made me fall in love with the art of calligraphy, and feel more inspired and ready to create than I have in a long time."  -Jodi

"Je m'intéressais à la calligraphie depuis un certain temps mais je ne savais pas trop comment m'y prendre pour passer de la théorie à la pratique. Le cours d'introduction offert par Joy était exactement ce dont j'avais besoin. En plus de partager son expérience et de nous donner une base théorique solide, elle nous a offert un suivi personnalisé tout au long du cours pour nous permettre de nous améliorer. J'ai maintenant plein de projets en tête et je suis en mesure de les réaliser!" -Catherine

"Learning copperplate calligraphy from Joy Deneen, whose distinct style I'd admired for at least a year before she was able to offer the class, was a treat and an honour. I'm pleased with the results after six weeks of detailed but gentle instruction, along with personal guidance when needed. I feel like I have a foundation I can now build on to develop my own style of pretty hand lettering."  -Ann-Margret

"Joy est une excellente pédagogue et possède un grand talent pour transmettre ses connaissances calligraphiques avec passion et clarté. Toujours de bonne humeur, à l'écoute des élèves, elle n'hésite pas à donner les meilleures notions théoriques et pratiques. Un cours très inspirant et concret qui dépasse les objectifs fixés au départ. Je la recommande sans hésitation!" -Nathalie

"The perfect little escape: to slow down, learn something new and be creative. Joy is wonderfully helpful and the process is so much fun!" -Ayla

"This introductory course fully met my expectations. In a class with several students, I still felt the instruction was adapted to my individual needs. Joy provides a well-balanced approach to her teaching; the material and the pace of the course was well thought out and her generosity to provide feedback on our 'homework' was very much appreciated."  -Inis
