Introduction to Basic Drawing

Attended: Introduction to Basic Drawing


I enjoyed the class, the teacher is a very unique individual. As I am not a beginning artist it was pretty basic stuff, but could be ok for a rank beginner.

Anita is amazing!! She's incredibly knowledgeable and passionate about memoir and I left the course feeling so much more confident about continuing with my own writing. Also, she did a beautiful job at making us a very cohesive group where feedback was shared in a genuine and protected space. It was a wonderful and unforgettable experience. I look forward to taking a course with her again.

I think beginners might want more guided practice, but it's a good class to learn some of the science behind art theory. I also like that it's offered on week nights - and of course the price is right.

Intensive French Pronunciation Workshop

Attended: Intensive French Pronunciation Workshop


There is no doubt the instructor is fluent in French, but the class was not like a class. The teacher went way too fast, and often it seemed as though she was just giving a talk as though it was an informal conversation and she often spoke in stream of consciousness. Considering it was a pronunciation class, I would have expected her to explain what she was teaching, say it loudly and slowly and give the class an opportunity to practice together out loud. I learned a few things, but I still can't pronounce French well. I consider the class a waste of money and didn't even bother going to the second session.
