TESTIMONIALS

MANY OF OUR STUDENTS TAKE COURSES WITH US FOR YEARS.  LISTEN TO THEIR STORIES TO GET A BETTER IDEA OF WHAT KAZONR ART IS ALL ABOUT 

“Kazone has a great staff with lots talent, enthusiasm and most of all sincere efforts from instructors for all student to achieve their pursuing goal.  With my kid's case, he has really struggled after his initial portfolio, but with consistent push and lead from the staff (especially Lim),  he has built a strong enough portfolio to get admitted to his dream school, Art Center.  I truly appreciate the help and direction from Kazone for building a great path for my kid and highly recommend this place to any individual pursuing art field."

Andrew P./Parent/ Art Center College of Design

“My experience at Kazone has been memorable.  I made some great friendships, and most importantly, I met some of the greatest teacher.  They are not only highly skilled at what they do, but they are passionate about it.  Moreover, Kazone really cares about building the individual's artistic ability and strengths.  The staff really cares about your ideas and are always there to help you if you ever get stuck on a project.  I would recommend to anyone who wants to expand or hone their creativity skills.."

Katie P./Student/Pepperdine University

“The talented artist-teachers at Kazone were the key to my son being accepted into the Roski School of Art at USC, as well as acceptances into the art programs at Chapman University and Syracuse University. He is now a freshman at USC and thriving there. Kazone prepared him well."

Richard M./Parent/USC School of Roski

“Great teachers and great school! Kazone has taught me so much about being an entertainment artist and the instructors have given me so much knowledge and insight in the entertainment business and art in general. They expect a lot of handwork and dedication, but it was worth it by gaining confidence in my artwork!"

Ryan P/Student/Art Center College of Design

“I looked for an art academy where I could take more advanced classes and that is where I met Lim Hur, a graduate of ACCD who is a concept artist for video games/films/commercials and also an art teacher at Kazone Art Academy. Even more than inspiring me with her artwork, Ms. Hur has taught me – oftentimes the hard way – the great necessity of developing the virtues of discipline and hard work.

“我的孩子 Ian Liao 因為您們的教導及鼓勵 使他能夠實現進入Art Center College of Design的願望 並且獲得高額的入學獎學金 Kazone的學習經驗 在 Ian 的成長過程中扮演著非常重要的角色 --- 不只在設計專業上 同時是在人格成長上   我看到孩子在老師的關懷, 啟發及嚴格要求下 能踏實努力及願意自我挑戰 在他收到Art Center錄取通知時 他告訴我 "媽媽 我知道未來沒有什麼事可以難倒我的了 !" 是Kazone的學習經驗 讓Ian 建立了這個信念   Ian 現在在學校 常跟我分享 Kazone 的學習經驗 讓他能以獨特的觀點去創造自己的作品及欣賞評論同儕的作品 我想 很重要的是 他知道他要成為什麼樣的人   謝謝您們建立了孩子的信心及給我們的溫暖!!"
