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.

The instructor is very nice and affable. There were just too many people in the class. I believe there were 23 students. Too many do right by each student. He had no time to critique our work. It would be helpful if the teacher included a syllabus for the group of classes. Week 1: shapes Week 2: perspective etc.

Had a great time and learned a variety of painting techniques. I liked that each class built on skills from the previous, so you incorporated more styles with each project.

I was looking for instructor lead class not online. This class enabled me to focus time on learning the basics. I was challenged and did come away with skills and confidence in drawing.
