    Anonymous review on 2/13/2024
    Teaching methods were inappropriate for an art course. Continuous questioning of students who rarely knew the answers made the course drag. Why not demonstrate - what happens when you mix X color with Y color? Show usOr even better, let the students try it out by working on scrap paper to see what happens when these colors mix. Also, many in the class did not appreciate the instructors sarcasm, especially his negative comment about his students who are over 75. There were students in this class over 75. I don’t think ageism belongs in a program like this.

    Loved the class! This was my first colored pencil class so I really wasn’t familiar with how to approach making an image using colored pencils. I learned a lot about layering colors, blending, and about color theory. It was great!

    I love the class, too much time spent in drawing. I wish we would spend more time in color pencil techniques, but the instructor, Zach is great and the class is very good.
