I enrolled under the assumption the class was fundamentals ie for beginners. The class was beyond too advanced for me. The class and teacher were by no means friendly or helpful. I would like to rescind my enrollment and look for another basic class if possible.

This was my first drawing classes. The teachers conveyed and illustrated techniques that guide the creation of a drawing.

Class is poorly organized with little or no organization and even less instruction. This class is not designed for one who is a beginner, wanting to study freehand drawing and should not be advertised as such.

The instructors and fellow classmates were so helpful and encouraging. AWESOME!

Reviewed by Miranda G. on 8/15/2017
I signed up myself and my teenage daughter, whose training in the visual arts courtesy of the NYC public school system has been a real disappointment to me. I wanted my daughter to come away from this thinking "I CAN draw, I just didn't know HOW." That goal was not achieved. While I enjoyed myself--because I've had enough training to pick up a pencil and go, and to be receptive to teacher corrections--my kid was nowhere near ready to do that. She needed, and I expected (from the course description), three hours of active teacher attention in a classroom setting, learning fundamentals of how to see. I understand that the instructor (whom I really liked, and found personable and wise) needs to adjust to the abilities of whoever shows up for class that day; we simply needed a much more structured entry-level experience. I'm sad that I had to walk out halfway through, with a teen who felt frustrated, bored, and is still convinced that she has no artistic ability.
