The class was great, well-organized, and had a safe environment for work. I definitely recommend someone to give it a shot, as it was welcome for beginners, as well as advanced drawers.

Reviewed by Bonnie L. on 10/15/2017
The course was perfect for me (and my son) -- absolute beginners. Elaina Wiley (sp) was such a lovely, sensitive and highly skilled teacher -- able to explain some of the magic of drawing -- in a way that was very accessible and encouraging for someone just starting out. It was especially nice being in the Met environment, which was both peaceful and inspiring. I would be very interested in other courses and workshops like this one.
