Question from anonymous
Can you please tell me who will be teaching this class (their full name) starting on March 27,
Answer from Darwin V. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi there, The teacher's name is Sarah. The school can't provide the full name for security reason. Sarah has been teaching for many years but she's been teaching at Discovery Center for 2 years now. She has an extensive background in art and has excellent reviews. Next Wednesday class will start in 4/10. I hope this helps.
Question from Tania E.
Hello, I am registered for the intro to painting class but have recently started looking at reviews on yelp and am a little hesitant now. Any feedback?
Answer from Georgia C. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi Tania! All the reviews for this class are located below this questions and answers and I can see many good feedbacks from the students who took this class. Upon checking, their old Yelp profile is outdated, mostly old or inaccurate information and the student who took this class just don't post there.
