“I learned so much, particularly about color and painting more loosely. Julie gave us so much great information, and I’m looking forward to continuing to practice!”
“Love, love love your online classes! I’ve done two so far and have really enjoyed both. I feel my work has improved a lot thanks to your online workshops.
You do the BEST job of these workshops. I love the pace, and the instructors are all so willing to stop and help students!”
“Jackie, the courses and quality of instructors you have cultivated through French Escapade V.I.E.W. is world-class. Jackie, you do such a great job hosting the program — you are on top of your game with production quality, responsiveness with quick replay links, and also announcing upcoming events to students. A side benefit is your fun, wickedly sharp and entertaining sense of humor. Keep up the great work. I’m not surprised that V.I.E.W. is expanding and doing so well.”
