I like the colours - it looks very fresh. The information is good and I just have a few small comments:


Usability - I would choose a darker colour for the links in the left frame. They are a bit hard to read right now. And a large size for the text. Also the logo could be a bit larger.

Marketing - I would consider not mentioning that you are not a master icon_smile.gif I think thats to humble and you shold put the emphasis on what you can teach anyone attending the classes instead.
Consider putting the price and the info about extra cost for on a page of it's own. The first page should be interesting and appealing and only have positive information.

All of the above only said to help( I work with usability and websites for a large global company) and sorry for my bad english

IMPORTANT NEWS: As a result of a recent meeting with Hobby Lobby corporate, the decision has been made to delay raising tuition until June 2010. Please update your Sign up book and flyers to reflect this change. Tuition will continue to be $35.00 (thats $17.50 with the 50% off promotion) through May 2010.

I love the colors and your site is easy to navigate. I would keep the font size more consistent and pull the blurry pictures, they detract from your professional look.

Can you adjust the title of the page the shows in the browser bar (top)? Right now it says "Company Name - Home - Le Roy, IL"
