    Instructor was fun and kind. However, there was WAY too much drawing of plastic fruit, which is incredibly boring.

    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.

    My first art school class since junior high. good experience. small class-not crowded, nice environment, excellent teacher. Always felt welcome and comfortable there at Art Studio NY. What I didn't know was that I entered the course mid stream and was only getting a partial course, which wasn't what I bargained for in terms of both my time and money.
