I really like some of the effects going on there. I don’t usually like that, but the transitions on the Our mission page is pretty neat. Nice portfolio of your work and I am very fond of the teaching shots you have at the bottom. Seems pretty well laid out, I think some of the pictures were a bit on the small end so they looked a little grainy, but nice site.

Jim, you have a killer site! The graphics are stellar with the info being presented in a concise, yet down to earth fashion. Your classes page is quite impressive … some really good offerings. I wish you much success!

I like the site Jim. I found myself wanting to click on a few of the photos to make them larger for a better look. Maybe it’s just me and my bad eyesight. The site is nicely laid out. Good job and I also wish you lots of success!

I really like it, Jim. Well laid out, not too busy (some web pages have so much flash, plugins, etc. they take longer to load than when I first got internet in 1993 with my Windows 3.1 computer!
Keep up the good work!

Jim, I like the layout of your site but most of the pictures need some work. They’re too fuzzy and out of focus. I would probably hire a professional to retake the pix. Just my two cents…

I agree that some of the photos do not do your work justice. Other than that, it is very good.

Thanks, everyone, and for all of your reviews, my son built the website and he also took the new good-looking photos, the grainy photos are old ones that I don’t have replacements for.I really appreciate you all taking the time to check it out for me and your positive responses and also for the things that are not top notch that need to be improved.

Very impressive Jim. It grabbed my interest right away. Not too commercial looking but more at heart.

I agree with Brian about the quality of some of the photos. Best foot forward, as they say.

Jim, your son did an awesome job on that website. It’s really informative and completely thorough. I doubt you can improve on it.

Not bad Jim,
Things that I notice.

I think you should update your picture under “About Jim”

Under Design Process, reading the print going into the pictures bugged me a little.
Not a deal breaker but found it a little uncomfortable.

Pictures, yes, some a little fuzzy. I would remove a few. The rest are OK to me.

Just my honest thoughts.
