Attended: Weekly Figure Drawing

There's no instruction for this class, but if you're just looking for a relaxed atmosphere for some figure drawing, this is really a great place! The only reason I gave it four stars was that the class started quite late-- they still made up the time, but this meant that the class went an hour later than planned.


Attended: Weekly Figure Drawing

Comfortable setting and a very friendly group of students and administrators. However, keep in mind there is no certain type of guidance or instruction about figure drawing so the class is best for either experienced students or simply ones who want to experiment and explore methods for figure drawing. Overall, I highly recommend the class!

The atmosphere is great, really good music to draw/paint to, which was nice. I guess I was expecting a little more hands on instruction, and was disappointed to have received no feedback. A couple of other people in the class mentioned they were picking up drawing from life again after several years, and Im sure they felt the same way.

Attended: Intro to Color Theory

I arrived to find out that the class had been cancelled. They did not inform Course Horse of this and they had taken my phone number or email incorrectly so they could not contact me.


Attended: Old Masters Oil Painting

Great Session - hands on with great feedback class allowed me to paint and get realtime feedback on what I am seeing and trying to convey on the canvas. Excellent experience.


Attended: Encaustic

The time was spent 50% learning about the process and 50% working on my own art. The teaching was expert—detailed with demonstrations. All in all---a great learning opportunity that was also a lot of fun.


Attended: DIY Silkscreening

This was a very informative, interesting class. The instructor was extremely well versed in home screening and carefully guided us through the steps of silkscreening. We all produced a good screen and printed on bags. Great class- but wear clothes you don't mind getting messy.


Attended: Blockprinting

Attended: Bookmaking

Attended: DIY Silkscreening

I really enjoyed this course. Erik has a deep understanding of the process and materials, and shared that knowledge with us fluidly. He set the class up where each of us can go out and practice silkscreening on our own outside the class.

Attended: 5 Session Watercolor

Alison was a great teacher, very friendly and willing to help. I do wish that she did demos before each lesson so students can learn brush and color mixing techniques so that we can apply learnings immediately. Overall, I enjoyed the variety of things we painted in class and the course did enhance my understanding of watercolor.


Attended: DIY Silkscreening

Very nice and helpful instructor. Would been better if we got instructions on how to prepare our silkscreen designs before the class. Many of us had images that were too big for the screen size and had to run to a Staples to adjust and reprint our designs onto acetate (some of us were not able to do so due to file issues, etc)

Attended: 5 Session Watercolor

Really good class - came in with basically no watercolor experience and really came out knowing enough to practice and get better on my own. Allison is great at giving tips and information while creating a loose, positive atmosphere where you don't need to feel bad if a particular painting doesn't turn out well. Sadly I think it's too expensive for me to take the class again to try to improve in a classroom setting with guidance, especially as there's no intermediate level.

Allison was a great teacher! I loved how each class was set up around one aspect of drawing (perspective, still life, portrait, etc.), and how plenty of time was given for us to work on drawings. There was a good balance between critique and also acknowledging that we were here to just learn and have fun with the techniques. Would definitely recommend!

In the first few minutes I learned at least three things about paint and mediums that I never knew! Really liked the instructor, too.


Attended: Encaustic

I had lots of fun! Teacher was knowledgeable. I left with 2 pieces of art (one to be proud of). I am not sure we needed to go over all the techniques in such depth. Encaustic seems to be a trial and error thing. But we still had plenty of time to try things! I would definitively take it again.

First off, this is a review for the "5 Session Intro to Painting" class with instructor Clarity Haynes. I thoroughly enjoyed this class! I learned a lot about acrylic painting techniques and enjoyed myself. Clarity Haynes, the instructor, was well prepared and organized and a wonderful guide to this new material. It helped that I had 3 great classmates working along with me -- it was a warm, friendly, and productive atmosphere and I'm so glad I had the opportunity to do it.
