Acrylic Painting for Absolute Beginners
Reviewed by Muhammad Q. on 4/8/2020
The class was amazing. In particular our instructor was extremely knowledgeable and patient. To add complexity to the matter we ran into the COVID-19 social distancing protocol. So 4 out of 5 sessions were held using online conference. Of course the online version is never a substitution for in person session. However, the instructor did his best and gave us enough feed back and instruction that the course ended up being useful. I highly recommend the class but in person is definitely better than online.
