Because the class size is small, we received good attention from the instructor who was very helpful. I’ve definitely improved my drawing skills due to her help!

Jennifer Q. commented on 15-Mar-2017 12:10 PM4 out of 5 stars
I liked watching improvement amony myself and fellow classmates. My teacher gave me basic drawing instruction and now I feel I can advance my skills with all the new techniques.
