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

The class was good and the teacher was good. But some of the work was to uniform and I don’t think that’s a good way to teach beginners to do their artwork. In life flowers are not uniform and should not be painted as such. They are random. Otherwise I learned a lot from that class and enjoyed it. I felt like the teacher was very easy-going with the students and good for a beginner class.
