I thought that the teacher was great! The facility itself seems a bit fragmented. I also had some challenges with a couple of the participant that made me feel uncomfortable and in one instance unsafe. Overall, I'm not sure that this is a space that I am eager to return to mainly because of the clientele.

My husband and I took this course as a special date night and LOVED it! It was fun, informative, engaging, and delicious! We learned a lot about wines and the instructor was extremely knowledgeable about all the different wines from around the world and was able to answer every question asked during the tasting and smelling.

I thought that this class was of great value. I enjoyed the teacher and meditative aspect of painting, however, there was less instruction as I anticipated. I would have gladly paid more to have a dedicated teacher and learn more techniques by watching/doing. The teacher was very talented, though, but juggled 2 classes at once.

The class was very good. The instructors were knowledgeable and communicated very well. The location and length of the class was also good. Recommendations: thanks f the class has a couple of more intermediate and advanced levels that will be great.
