The event was absolutely PERFECT!  Pete was amazing and the students really enjoyed themselves!  I hope to make this an annual thing.

Pete was wonderful! All of our employees enjoyed their experience and Pete was a great teacher.
We will keep you guys in mind for future events!

Holly Early, Office Manager, Atlantic Training, LLC

I attended the paint party on Saturday.  I just wanted to thank Pete for helping me as it was my first time painting.  I am a person with Traumatic Brain injury and I wanted to say that the drawings he did on the white board helped me very much because without his both verbal and visual instruction, I would not have been able to do the painting. It was very helpful because the class was large and the setting was noisy which further challenged me. I just wanted to say thank you.  I think in pictures in my brain and it  helps me to have the painting chunked out like Pete did visually.  I was thinking it may help you with other classes in the future to know this.

I wanted to send a huge thank you for helping us with our event…Jane was absolutely amazing!! She was appreciated and loved by all!! What a lovely, lovely, talented person with stellar customer service!! I’m sure you know how fortunate you are to have her on your team. As a manager of people, I always value hearing positive [in this case glowing] feedback. Again thank you for your patience with this group and sending Jane!

Marion and Pete,

Thank you, one again for an amazing paint night.  I think this painting was the perfect one to get everyone excited for summer.

We really appreciate your services to make this such a fun and enjoyable evening and we look forward to continuing this annual event over the years.

Kindest regards

Hi Marion!
Had a great time!! Looking forward to doing it again!

Nancy Duncan

A really nice event. The project was a little more difficult than prior experiences but Patty was super helpful. We all really enjoyed ourselves.
Thank you so much!!


Thank you so much for such a wonderful evening last Friday night. It was by far our most successful Untapped History program, and something we’d love to do again. I received a lot of positive feedback from attendees, and it was so nice to see the room filled with new faces having fun and being introduced to our spaces and collections.

You have been wonderful in answering all of my questions through this process and the artists led a well paced and perfect evening. I can’t say enough good things about it and look forward to working with you again!

Thank you to you and your painting instructors for coming to the University of Delaware and making it a fun and creative night for all of the students.

Last night was a fantastic experience! Everyone had a lot of fun and thought the event as well as everyone involved (you, Jane, your daughter etc) were wonderful! As someone who was very challenged last night painting, Jane was very encouraging and helpful!

Thank you again for all you did to make this night happen I will certainly be recommending you to others at Sallie Mae and friends and family 🙂

Alecia Grova

Thanks for your time and patience and teaching skills. I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of your class. I had to give one of the glasses a test run the following day. The wine looked so much better and the taste too. I had to have a couple more glasses. The glasses passed their test run. I look forward to another class in the future. Maybe a wine or whiskey barrel next?



The class was wonderful and I would not change a thing. The Instructors were right on the ball when dealing w/me – someone who cannot draw a straight line.
Again, thank you.

Elizabeth Lee Roberts

Hi Marion, Many thanks for working together with me to create a very nice and successful fundraiser! Everyone just loved last night. For many, it was something brand new! Jane Henry did a super great job. She is an amazing artist!

Karen Hickman

I cannot say enough great things about our entire experience on Saturday. Our group was made to feel so very special and every single lady in attendance raved about how wonderful it was.
We will be without a doubt letting all of our friends know where to go to have the best time ever.
Cannot thank you guys enough for making Caitlin’s day absolutely perfect for her. The kindness, patience and the absolutely festive and fun atmosphere was perfect.
Thanks again – so very much. I am sure I will be back soon!

Valerie Aunet

I just wanted to take a moment to let you know how happy I was with the party Caitlin provided tonight! It was extremely well organized, set up so festive, and overall one of the best parties I have been to. Caitlin was so good with keeping the very talkative teenagers focused and I could tell she spent a lot of time prepping to ensure a smooth event. I appreciate it so much and have already begun to spread the word! We will definitely be back! Thanks again

Nancy McMann

We had a great time!! We definitely want to do this again this year. This was so AWESOME!!!!! I had so many of them come up to me afterwards and said they will definitely come again if we have it….
You all were wonderful and I/We thank you so much for everything!!!
I saw the pictures. They were all wonderful.. Thank you for taking them. Have a great day and Thanks again.

I must say, my first experience at Kennett Design was frustrating. I am not very artistic by nature, but I am a perfectionist and I didn’t love my completed painting. Last night, I decided to give painting another try with a group of coworkers from Mary D Lang. What a difference! Jane Henry was our instructor and she made the entire process so easy and stress-free! She gave GREAT step-by-step instructions and encouraged everyone throughout the evening. I love my painting and am looking forward to my next class! Thanks so much for bringing this great business to Kennett Square!!

Elizabeth Munson

My husband and I had so much fun at the Paint and Sip you held at Elkton State Line Liquor. I had never been to one before and my husband wasn’t sure what to expect at the event, but the both of us had fun getting back into painting again. Personally I had forgotten how relaxing it was to just paint and the two hours just zipped by. I loved our teacher, Caitlin, and I definitely can’t wait to check out more of your future events!

Lora Roberts

Thanks so much for all you did to help me orchestrate a very nice day. We had a wonderful time, once the “stress” over the perfect cloud passed, and the wine was poured 😉 As you recall, we were running a little behind with timing, however your instructor was very accommodating and gracious with regard to our late arrival, long with being patient AND encouraging when frustrations were expressed, she is to be applauded, as are you!
Thanks Again!

I just wanted to send a quick note to tell you how much we enjoyed meeting Patty Moshanko last weekend at Dove Winery. Patty is a very delightful instructor and made the wine glass painting class very fun.
Happy Holidays!

Dee Marotta

I just wanted to thank Kennett Design for a fun night of painting. Caitlin (Daugherty) was wonderful and made the experience relaxing and fun.
The attached picture is of me and my two daughters with our paintings.  Caitlin and Caitlyn made our night extra special by adding a little red cardinal on each of ours in honor of my Mom, who passed away last year.  We can’t wait to schedule another paint night at Kennett Design!
Thank you

Donna Kiernan

On Saturday night, Nov. 7th Carol Mango taught us so many ways to make our art look as good as her art.  Her teaching technique was so great.  I was fun to create such a beautiful snow scene in just 2 hours.  I enjoyed the evening so much!  Thanks Carol!

Lorraine Fortune

We had a blast at our Mother/Daughter Paint Night. All of our families were so surprised and had a lot of fun! We so appreciate the set up and clean process you guys have in place. I was honestly a little worried about that part, but it worked out great…  All in all hands down it was a great experience and we hope to do another event with Kennett Design in the future.
Thank you again for a very memorable evening for our families,

Courtney Papanicolas

I’ve had some very bad experiences painting taking art class as a child. So I went to this class feeling insecure. Mindy did a fantastic job leading me through the painting and I came home with a painting that I love enough to hang for others to see! So worth going to and I can hardly wait to attend a class with Mindy again!

Lynn Latshaw

I went to the scarf painting class over the weekend. It was fabulous! It was much easier than I thought it would be, and turned out to be a lot of fun. Our instructor was very helpful, giving attention to all of us. I would definitely go again.
Patti Walker

Patti Walker

Thanks Carole for being a great instructor for my Birthday party! We all had a fantastic time and love our paintings. It’s always wonderful to have my family and friends celebrate with me. A special thanks for all the pictures you took and sent. I really appreciate it!


We had an outstanding time last night! We are women who all used to work together and half of us retired and the other half are still working and so we get together every 3 months to socialize, and it has always been just drinks and dinner which has been ok, but this was much better! Your place had such a nice atmosphere, Cris Hess was an excellent instructor and having us near a table set up for our snacks and drinks was so lovely. We went off to Lily’s afterward for some sushi and the feedback was A+.
Thanks so much…will recommend to all my friends.

ps.  My college daughter snapped up ‘Starry Night’ the second I came home for her new apartment!!!

Amy Sherry

The paint camp that Loulou ran last week out of your studio was outstanding! My son Jack attended 4 days and my son Tristan attended on Thursday. They both came away feeling empowered, encouraged and proud of what they had accomplished. Most importantly, my children said they “had fun!”

Loulou was great. We took the paintings they did and brought them to a dinner we went to with friends on Friday night. The families were really impressed. They have small children and are going to look into your offerings for their kids too. My family was thrilled with the self-portrait. John, my husband, and I can’t say enough about the teacher and the studio. It was so soothing in there, the lighting is great, etc.

A few years ago my husband and I bought a living social and each painted half a tree. We still have it hanging in our bedroom. I’m so glad we bought that living social, because that’s what prompted me to look into your offerings for our boys. Please have LouLou run the camp again next year, as my kids can’t wait to go back!

Nancy and John Waldorf

It was even better than I expected – a lot of fun and the teacher was great! We will definitely be back!

Kelly Palaisa

What an awesome time at the Kitty Knight House with Carole. We all enjoyed the experience and can’t wait to do it again! Marion thanks for making it happen!

Theresa Tucci

I can’t say enough great things about our wine glass painting last weekend.  My husband and I truly had a wonderful time and we love the painting.  Also, Mindy was great!  🙂  I’ve been spreading the word at work as well.

Trixia Santiago

Had a great time last night. My painting was not the best but the instructions were good.

Beatrice nickerson

I had such great time with Carol as our instructor. She was knowledgeable and a lot of fun. Can’t wait til you’re back in Middletown.

Janet V Banks

Always a fun evening, and everyone that I have brought has had a blast!

Jane Freemas

We had a wonderful time at our private party!! The studio and staff were great and the event was a hit with all participants–everyone is talking about the next time already!!

Tracy Ward

We had a GREAT time!!! And can I tell you Carole was wonderful… she was patient, nice and kind… when you have a room full of non-painters asking 101 different questions you need patience… she was a great teacher I can’t say enough about her…  I was the host and I wasn’t able to help anyone… including myself everyone was expecting numbers on their canvas… laugh out loud… She worked the room like a champion and calmed everyone nerves… by the end of the night we all were artist!!! Some better than others… I felt my painting was much much better than what I thought it was going to be…

Thanks again!!!

Terri & Rhonda

Terri Thornton


I just want to let you know we had a great time Friday night! It was so much fun and we are all pleased with our paintings. You will hear from me very soon…we are bringing our husbands next time:-)

Lou was awesome!

Kathy Maguire-Stoudt

My class was painting the blue crab at Timothy’s. I found painting was so relaxing and enjoyable, that I have taken up painting again in my personal life and loving it. Thank you to the excellent instruction and inspiration.

Monica Barney

Hi Jennifer – I just wanted to send you a quick note to thank you for a wonderful evening on Saturday. The art studio was a great place for us to celebrate our 40th. It was everyone’s first experience painting and you were patient and more importantly really interactive with the guests. You really gave it a personal touch by being so pleasant. Thank you for such a memorable experience!

Marion – You have a beautiful art studio and thank you for sharing this special place with us!

Shilpa Agarwala

Thank you for another great time at Kennett Design with a Splash of Wine! This time I brought some of my family and a few friends to paint Lucy, the giraffe. It was such fun. Lou, the instructor, was wonderful. She was informative, flexible and invested in making this ‘our’ session. I know that you went out of your way to schedule this particular event at a day and time convenient for all of us.
I also wanted to give you a special thanks for adding at my suggestion, a giraffe to your painting collection. It was so thoughtful of you and I hope many of your customers have as much fun painting Lucy as we did.
You are very customer-focused and it is greatly appreciated. See you soon! Maureen

Sherry Mraz

I first discovered Kennett Design’s painting parties with a few friends of mine at Hurricane Grill in Elkton, MD and we were hooked from “go!”. It was such a fun and unique experience that we decided to plan a party with a big group of our friends. Crabby Dick’s in Delaware City, DE hosted the party for us. Mindy was our instructor and we painted “Love Birds”. It was wonderful. Everyone at the party enjoyed themselves so much that we plan on having monthly events with Kennett Design. They are accommodating, friendly, and so knowledgeable that many of us without much artistic ability all learned something. We love doing these painting parties! I can’t recommend them enough!

Megan Simonds

We had a blast looking forward to coming again soon bringing more friends!!!

I wanted to thank you for such an enjoyable time at the Chelsea Tavern. It was a wonderful “girls night”. The time flew by and we were all so proud of our artwork. We can’t wait to do it again.

Marcy Mahoney
