Attended: Ceramic for Beginners

The class was great! Good pace, group size and instructions. The only sad thing was to kill your darling by the end of the class, i.e throw away your "masterpiece".

Attended: Jewelry Fabrication: Techniques in Hollow Construction

Klaus is great. His instruction is unsurpassed. One of the best!

Attended: Comic Storytelling

Very knowledgeable, serious and experienced instructor. Excellent exercises.

Attended: Collage & Mixed Media (Basic/Int)

The 92nd Street Y is a perfect place for creativity. So much was going on in the building when I arrived at class. I was impressed with the eclectic mix of people this center draws. Very pleased with the location.

Attended: Jewelry Fabrication: Techniques in Hollow Construction

This is a great class and I have taken it a handful of times. Because most students have been with Klaus for many years, the projects sometimes veer off the traditional hollow construction methods depending on what the students are interested in. This is not a problem for me since I take this particular class because of the teacher, not the project. So this review is more about Klaus as an instructor. Klaus is not only a master jeweler (taught in Germany) who emphasizes precision and proper technique, but also a phenomenal teacher. He cares about the work his students produce and encourages them to push their limits and achieve high quality craftsmanship. He is a straight shooter with a sense of humor. I've taken many classes at the 92nd St Y and keep going back to Klaus' because of his exceptional ability to impart his expertise that can help students grow at any level. The 92nd St Y overall has a great jewelry program, but some instructors are better teachers than others. I find all are amazing jewelers, but not necessarily good teachers. Some struggle to command a class and provide instruction.

Attended: Public Speaking: A Crash Course

I think the class was very practical. We not only learned by listening but got to interact and even took home videos to watch and learn from mistakes. I liked the format a lot and the instructor kept the time lively and informative.
