  • Beginning Mosaics

    Anonymous review on 10/21/2023
    I was not really satisfied with instructor. She was a perfectly nice person, but really did little instruction, which I get that more advanced folks don’t need - they are basically doing parallel art time and paying to be in a studio with their supplies. It would have been great to learn more about approaches and intent with using different shapes, styles and colors of glass, but she only showed us some images where we had to crowd around her laptop to see and that was it. There were others more advanced in the class and she could have used their projects as examples to the beginners to talk about approaches and techniques. Felt pretty much on our own and she would make rounds 1-2 in class to check on us. Did not send supply list ahead of class - which I also think should be made clear upon registering that you will have to invest more money in tools and glass. I think the EAC should supply enough tools to share. All to say, I don’t think I will keep up with this art form and if I do, probably won’t go back to EAC or just do this on my own.

  • Beginning Jewelry

    Anonymous review on 8/23/2022
    While, the instructor was very sweet and offered to help with any projects we the students wanted to create, there was 0 structure to the class. Most of the other students just did there own thing because they've taken classes there before and were basically just using the class to use the facilities. I was hoping for a much more structured environment where every session we had an assignment which taught us how to use different equipment and techniques. Potentially this would create at least a handful of different pieces showcasing different machines and styles. This was sadly not the case. Again, she was a very nice person-very approachable and was willing to work with you on whatever project you chose to do but having no experience I did not know what projects I could of potentially undertaken.

  • Introduction to the Portrait in Color

    Anonymous review on 3/26/2021
    I really liked the instructor and he was patient with my concerns. However, I took the course expecting some basic instruction on facial construction , and skin tone color mixing suggestions, but there was little. He was more inclined to make suggestions after a student did either a basic paint or drawing. For me, I did not have the skill to do the basics well, so I stopped attending at the class midpoint. I only gave it 2 stars because the course description should have clarified as to what the course contents would and would NOT include.
  • Pen and Ink Illustration

    Could have been a shorter class. Most techniques were covered by the 4th class.
  • Drawing Into Painting (Online)

    Reviewed by LAURI F. on 2/12/2021
    As a complete beginner, this was an excellent course. Although there were others in the class with far more experience than I, everyone was supportive and provided excellent feedback of previous work. Then there was time to learn and practice new concepts. As we got to watercolor and began practicing those techniques, the time flew by as I worked. I highly recommend this course and Sarah as an instructor. Thank you, Sarah!
