Beginner's Watercolor Painting

Attended: Beginner's Watercolor Painting


Really enjoyed this class and learned a great deal. Laura Habian was wonderful and explained things so well and was very encouraging. Definitely recommend this class and will look for others that are similar. Watercolor isn't something you can master in a few classes and I want to learn more. Thank you, Laura! Karen

Beginner's Drawing at the MET

I took the Beginner's Drawing at the MET class in August 2022 and really loved it. Just in 4 2 hour classes, we learned the basics of drawing figures, faces, different drawing techniques, and tricks. Our instructor - Jourdin - was amazing, so patient, so encouraging, extremely knowledgeable, and easygoing. Just the whole experience of drawing at MET is incredible. You finally have time to look at the art pieces you like for a long time, attempt at drawing them, get the feedback and support you need as well as admiring looks of people who pass you by. I highly recommend this class.

The teacher, Isaac, was patient, encouraging and knowledgeable in teaching us the drawing and shading of basic shapes. This was the best class I have had in shading with pencils and I learned a great deal.

Beginner's Intro to Watercolor Painting: Single Session

Leslie H.

Attended: Beginner's Intro to Watercolor Painting: Single Session


I had never used watercolors before and had never taken a painting class. By the end of it, I had discovered a new activity that I could play with, and on a personal level I recognized my old perfectionism trying to reassert itself. By allowing myself to paint and not be concerned with doing it “right” or “perfectly,” I gained not only the enjoyment of experimenting with paints, but also a feeling of satisfaction knowing I hadn’t cheated myself out of a lovely experience. Claire was a wonderfully encouraging teacher!
