Painting in Watercolor - Level 1
Reviewed by Anonymous on 10/14/2019
This was a great course to learn the basic techniques and order when painting with watercolor. Freddy demonstrated how to paint various scenes and we would practice doing them on our own. He was patient, fun, and would come and check on students and assist them with improving their pieces. Many of the students are eager to take the intermediate course when it becomes available.
