“Linda gives massive amounts of information. There’s so much to choose from and she is always available for students. I think she’s a hologram or a transformer or something!”
“This instructor had a very good knowledge of the art of grant-writing and she was able to give us a lot of information about grant-writing. I specifically have what it takes to write a good artist statement to help one get a grant.”
“This workshop really opened my eyes to the grant writing process. I now feel much more prepared and confident that I can apply for grants. I also LOVED that Linda is an artist and speaks from that vantage point.”
“Linda was very professional, knowledgeable and funny. She answered questions thoroughly. I feel like I learned so much. I would like to take her class. I have been looking for a class like this and there is much need for this class.”
