 “Cynthia Knox is a dedicated teacher.  Her expertise in the colored pencil media is absolutely astounding.  She has the ability to inspire, motivate, and educate her students to achieve levels they never knew imaginable.  Cynthia is one of the finest teachers I have been privileged to know.” – B. LaBelle

“You are a fantastic artist and teacher!  Michelle and I enjoyed this workshop more than any other since your workshop on the 2015 Alaska cruise.  We will fly down again from BC, Canada, for your next one.” – E. Cooke

“So far I have been able to attend all the workshops that Cynthia has taught in The Villages (Florida).  She is amazing as an artist, as a teacher, and as a person.  She has a way about her that makes her students feel very comfortable around her.  Her classroom material is always well prepared, and she takes the time to help each student.  I am looking forward to another one of Cynthia’s workshops in 2019!”  – R. Conboy
