    Thought teacher covered the basics of painting in watercolors extremely well. She always touched base with the class on their progress and very open to our questions

    I really liked Anna as a teacher. She explains things clearly and is very supportive. The one thing that I would have liked to have had on the first day was information about whether she was going to be mostly talking or whether we needed to have paint ready. I wasn’t prepared properly that day since I didn’t know what to expect. I would take more classes with her.

    I learned more from Elizabeth in this class than in three years of other classes. I’m also enjoying my own work so much more.

    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.
