    The class was fantastic. The teacher was so patient with us. I wish it was longer, or a longer version was offered. I would definitely pay more to take more classes from him. I learned so much!

    This is a great basic sketch course for characters and human form in general. I wished it was a little longer so that I could practice more in class, but it was a great refresher since I hadn't been drawing figures in a while.

    I really loved the class. It was amazing to actually be able to draw things from reference and understand how shapes break down. I even did some my own stuff, which was a lot of fun. The instructor was amazing and was clearly very invested in teaching us as efficiently as possible. I do wish there was someone in the class that had more experience in the industry and maybe a bit more insight into developing student's styles if it were a six/seven week course. I do think he did his job perfectly.
