from Darlene Winter –
Finished coloring my faces! Look forward to the next step!! Thanks, Kecia for the informative videos & these darling faces!! I’ve always wanted to take a class from you & I’m really enjoying this one. Hope there are more to come!!
from Gina Parent –
“I just completed the “Sunshine Dolls With Kecia Deveny” class and am very excited! I have a short attention span and Kecia divided the class into a series of short videos that guide you clearly through all of the steps to
make her cool art dolls. She was very “to the point” without a lot of
needless chatter which helped me to focus on the easy steps used to complete our project. If you are afraid of faces she mails you two different ones of her own design for you to paint in your own color choices to use for your doll. She inspired me with her instructions and tips so I am flying with this class and want to make more dolls in my own style. Thank you Kecia, you are an excellent and kind teacher!”
