"Ryan Cronin connects with our students on a deeper level than any other resident artist. He creates a mural from an organic place, using the hearts and minds of our children. What comes from a small initial idea, blossoms into a masterful mural. The students love and appreciate this work that they can admire for the remainder of their years here at Jefferson." - LeAnn Bruno, Assistant Principal @ Jefferson Elementary in New Rochelle.

"We at Jefferson elementary have had the pleasure of working with Ryan Cronin for a few years now. His energetic approach with the students pulls the most out of them. Students are very engaged and enthusiastic to learn new painting techniques and show Ryan their creativity. Ryan's contemporary art gives the students a new unique way to create and look at art. He lets the children know that anything is possible and to celebrate their differences and individuality. " - Paolo Fiorino, Art Teacher @ Jefferson Elementary in New Rochelle.
