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
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.
Carla is a wonderful teacher and this class is very enjoyable!
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.
Good instructor. Class was informative and relaxing.
Isaac went through everything so clearly with simple explanations. The 90 minutes flew by!

Isaac is a very positive, encouraging instructor! Enjoyed the class.
I really enjoyed this class. It was good for both beginners and or advanced people.
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!
The instructor was very polite and continually checked with the participants during the painting process. I have a great painting, of which I'm very proud of... thanks to the instructor!
