James is so passionate about creating and teaching art, and he is an excellent, attentive teacher. Not a lot of art studios around here so I really appreciate finding this one.

Reviewed by Marcus P. on 8/8/2022
Incredibly grateful to have attended this session. Such a dope inviting space, James is such a phenomenal artist so just being able to see a combination of both his finished and unfinished work was so inspiring. Despite such a short session I feel like I truly walked away changed by our interaction not just from the exercise and all the tips he imparted but the conversations and being in the space and presence of such seasoned and serious yet humble artist was very motivational. Im eager to explore more course options with him in the future and would definitely recommend giving this course a try.
