The difference you help us make

There's no doubt you (OTB) had an integral part in helping me shape my aspirations & for that, there aren't any words to capture how grateful I am."

Kirsten Former OTB Student now attending The University of Berkeley California

Otb and Melinda have channeled the inner talents and strengths out of so many people, including myself. Melinda is the most kind hearted, talented, and charismatic person. She has been a great leader of this organization and has done amazing things. I look forward to seeing OTB grow and expand its horizons of music, love, good-will, and charity

Crystal , OTB student, singer, songwriter and college student

I don't even know where to begin. You (OTB) changed my life. You brought so much positivity, love, peace, and pure happiness into my life. You changed my perception of the world and the art that can be created from inside.

Becca OTB Student & Artist

OTB changed my life and I'm forever grateful for the lessons I have learned.

Julie, OTB student, singer songwriter, & college student

I go to the paint nights pretty often and they are always fun and creative! They're totally worth the price and it feels good knowing that we're helping kids.You never feel like you're failing or not painting something correctly. This is super important to me because I know some other paint classes are strict about you doing the same artwork as everyone else.I couldn't recommend the paint nights enough. They are so much fun!

We have been so lucky to find Melinda!! She has a giant heart for kids!! The progress our daughter has made in 3 short month of piano lessons is amazing!! We are excited for what the future brings, and look forward to more smiles and music  with an awesome teacher!

Emily (OTB Mom)

Melinda offers something special as she teaches and really seems to love her work. She is compassionate, thoughtful, encouraging, and kind. We are so glad to have found Out of the Box Arts and Melinda to encourage our artists.

Thank you, Melinda!

Chelsea, OTB Mom

The group classes have been a huge help for my daughter! She loves the friends she makes and is learning so much about painting and writing songs. She is usually shy but has found her voice here with other creative kids.
