Reviewed by George H. on 8/13/2018
Instructor was great. Set the class assignment first and then gave individual help. I would have preferred one medium (pencils) to learn contour, shading, etc. I found switching between pencil, charcoal & pastels very difficult.

My first art school class since junior high. good experience. small class-not crowded, nice environment, excellent teacher. Always felt welcome and comfortable there at Art Studio NY. What I didn't know was that I entered the course mid stream and was only getting a partial course, which wasn't what I bargained for in terms of both my time and money.
