Review by Jimmie of Jimmie’s Collage:

“Barb sent me a copy of her Degas and Prokofiev plans (Autumn 2010 Art & Music Appreciation) to review. In a word — fantastic! She makes me laugh. She said that I do such great artist and composer studies that I wouldn’t need such a plan. Well, Barb, I think your plan is wonderfully laid out and I do plan to use it this fall. Why wouldn’t I? You’ve already done all the legwork for me. Not using it would be like refusing someone to come to my home and prepare a delicious dinner for my family. If you want some direction for your artist study and composer study, this product is a great help. You don’t have to do any planning or hunting. Just click, print, and go. Oh, and it costs only $3.25, so this is really affordable.”
