Beginner's Drawing at the MET (Single Session)

9/14/2018
Isis S.

Attended: Beginner's Drawing at the MET (Single Session)


The teacher was AMAZING, and so was the experience of being in the museum. However, my one complaint is that this class needed way more than 2 hours. For the price and work we were doing it was not even close to enough time to complete one project, let along two. The other beginner's classes I have taken, which were mostly just drawing stages of still lives, were 3 hours, and some even let us run over. They should consider either lowing the price or making the class longer, as a trip downtown to the museum and then to spend under two hours drawing felt a bit wasteful.

Learning to draw, and now paint, at The Art Studio New York has been the most positive, encouraging experience. Our teacher, Jake, has a way of turning the most difficult, frustrating experience around. And teaching you to be patient as you learn and your skills develop. I’m so happy here!

Fear-Free Drawing 101

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.

Beginner's Draw In Central Park

Attended: Beginner's Draw In Central Park


Absolutely terrific. Jessie was wonderful...lowkey, helpful, patient...excellent in demonstrating points such as ways to hold pencil...like a harmonica; explaining the differences in the numbering/lettering of pencils and what each drew; suggestions of views; using eraser as a tool for drawing....and list goes on. She walked around constantly checking with each of the seven of us. Her sense of humor and phrasing were also appreciated.

It was a great class & introduction to drawing. We learned how to tackle a drawing step by step. The instructor was wonderful and provided lots of one on one time to check in with the students and answer any questions!

Attended: Beginner's Drawing: Learn To Draw In 90 Minutes


The teacher was great as was the instruction. The class was actually somewhat advanced. I thought it was going to be more rudimentary which is what I was looking for. So just note you are going to be doing a whole still life in about an hour! Too much expectation for beginners. I LOVED the art studio and all the folks in there!! Great vibe and friendly, funny people.
