My daughter took Ms. Mucha's class. So good!!! Ms. Mucha was great and is a professional in the Art world, PRICELESS!

My son took this Merit Badge class from Sandra and enjoyed it very much! Highly recommend! Our Scout takes a ton of online merit badges right now. This has been one of the most quality merit badges he has done!

Thank you for what your doing Sandra Mucha! For anyone trying to get all 138 merit badges or just textiles you need to work with her its super easy to use. I only had a slight issue with one of the requirements but I was able to understand a little bit later.

"Ms. Mucha provides a great escape virtually allowing my scout to stay on track with her professional step-by-step online course. We appreciate the weekly progress reports, and my scout really enjoyed the art appreciation and art lessons too!"

“Our Daughter is very much enjoying your class and cannot wait for more fun artwork! She continues drawing and coloring at home too.”

"Our son is doing well in your class, and he is very excited about sharing with us the projects he’s worked on. He’s even shown more (than previously), interest in working on projects at home."
