We really enjoyed doing the projects together. I love it! They look really nice in my office and home. I appreciated your kindness in letting us have the one copy that was not going to work in the big piece. Costumer service is a big part of the experience and you provided it at all times! The personal touch is big for me.

“Dear Barbara Balkin and everyone at Artkin,
I wanted to let you know how pleased we were both with the process of making our artwork and with the final product. The directions were easy to follow. We had three generations involved in the process and everyone had so much fun making the design we had chosen. It was great to see how each person made the template their own. The youngest person participating was five years old and the oldest 70, yet it was easy and fun for everyone. We chose to surprise our family with the activity over the holidays and it was a wonderful activity to do together, especially for the grandparents and the children. We gave the finished product as a gift to the grandparents and they could not have been more thrilled with their Artkin canvas. I will definitely be recommending Artkin to my friends. Thank you!”

“I thought it was a wonderful project! The timing of the project was perfect for Christmas. I loved it and so did the girls. I really liked how we could all do our own thing and it was easy enough for a 4 year old.”

We absolutely love our bird canvas. Why? Because it tells a story of a time when we all sat around the table and spent time coloring, joking, talking and laughing. Also, sharing our ideas, discussing colors, and peeking at each other’s pictures. So many different interpretations and the kids each made a nest with eggs—that was sweet.
Your Tip Sheet came in handy. I admit I was a bit petrified (since I don’t color and do not consider myself an artist). But, your tips gave us ideas.
I consider this an heirloom —a time we will all remember. Daily I look at it and it makes me smile, thinking of the fun time we all had. The canvas is sturdy and appears that it will stand up for many years to come.
Thank you for a professional and creative job.”

“It was really fun creating the art canvases for the Art Auction with my students. The end result was better than anyone could have imagined. We love the original finished canvases. They are priceless!”

He loved it! Honestly, I wasn’t sure how he would receive the guitar canvas — he’s not very sentimental. But, he really appreciated it and thought it was cool. He knows exactly where he’s going to hang it!
Thanks so much.”

“When I hear ‘make-your-own’ art companies claim ‘You don’t need any artistic talents–anyone can do it!’, I think, ‘Yeah, right.’ But I could really DO this! And the oil pastels were so forgiving. If you mess up, you can just go over it and blend. I was really happy with my results. Thank you!”

“Awesome evening with really nice ladies! Really fun thing to do with friends! Thank you, Barbara, for a great evening and something different and creative to do with old friends and new. A total blast!”
