  1. Hello Marty,
    Nice to meet you on Sunday. I was there with my friend and talked with you for a bit. I am interested in learning to print on fine art paper…I have a photographer friend that I am going to see if she
    will come up with me and do a class with 2 people.
    Let me know what days of the week work best for you and perhaps we can schedule something for
    end of September or October. Thank you,
    Brenda (from San Jose)
