Dear Mrs. Kettlewood, I was just thinking the other day -- more than 50 years later-- of how you told us that you were taught to draw a butterfly by starting with a box, and you didn't like that, so you drew the butterfly first, and then added the box. Now in retirement, I'm doing art for the first time since 9th grade with you and Miss Enright. I have taken up pottery and collage, and I'm not very good, but it is liberating to be the worst student in the class. Thanks for opening a door for me. yours, Kerry Mueller
The work is inspiring... and so are you. Thank you for all that you have shared. It has certainly left its mark on me.
With love and appreciation,
Every once in a while I come across someone charismatic, talented, and deeply human. This special individual is Bea Kettlewood! She contnues to inspire students, especially this student of life - Thank you, Bea, for the beauty you bring through your work and your presence! Dorothy Quinn
Love them all.
Very interesting how even though there are no figures, each is lively and alive.
Congratulations. So inspiring!
Much love, Carolyn Croll
