Friendly instructor, nice pace for beginners

The pace and duration of the lesson was good for beginners like myself. Friendly instructor who was generous with her feedback and useful tips.

Good Introductory Course

Course was extremely fun. We were given a good introduction to brush strokes with templates, and got to bring home our handwritten work. Very reasonably priced as well.

Kids enjoyed it greatly and learned a lot.
