I enrolled in “Drawing for Beginners” because I wanted to learn a few tips that might help me learn to draw. Instead, we were just told to draw items. I could have saved the money and stayed home.

The class was in a very uncomfortable setting. The instructor started the class over 4 times because of extremely late people walking in. It was disappointing to sit there for 3 hours before even getting a drink. If the additional $25 was for “lab supplies” they were very lacking. Instructor did not have enough supplies for everyone in the class and it was very low quality alcohol by the instructors own admission.

Too much class room time. Instructor stopped 4 times and went over things again due to people coming late. I would suggest moving forward and not making those that were there on time sit thru the same things over and over. Room was quite small and uncomfortable. Several people were missing pages from the handouts so this was another delay. Ingredients were missing or very scarce and by the time we were able to finally mix drinks it was not well organized and some ingredients ran out. Throughout the 4 hours we sat of class time we were never asked if we wanted a drink (even water) yet the instructor had several of his own drinks of coffee. This didn't seem right to the customers. Not complaining about the class but just offering some feedback from the customer's perspective.
