Reviewed by Michelle B. on 6/27/2019
Had a great time taking the Animate CC Level 1 class. I am new to the program and wasn't sure how well I would do. Our instructor, Mark, was fantastic. He's a great teacher with lots of patience. I feel confident in knowing the basics thanks to him. Would love to sign up for more classes!
