Great first class. I was given a wealth of information and techniques that will help me get a solid start on my drawing journey. Professor Javier is very kind and considerate, would definitely come back, worth every dollar.

James took great pains to get me to see that I was working towards a greater artistic goal. He was patient, informative and resourceful. He made form and anatomy a pleasurable subject to study. I would not hesitate to attend his classes.

Reviewed by Erin M. on 3/16/2020
What a special experience! From the moment I walked in, I felt so welcome, and the level of personal attention and the overall vibe was truly other-worldly. I kept wondering what the catch was, but I left feeling as if I was welcome to come back, but not pressured to. I think that will actually make it so much more likely I'll head back very soon!

Learning at Decorus has been an absolute pleasure. As I've spent more time there, I've seen how well and thoughtfully James adapts his teaching style to each new student. I've been amazed how much I've improved in the last month and could not recommend more highly.
