“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! ”.
“The session recordings are one of the reasons these live on-line workshops are better than in-person workshops. The other reason is that we can sit comfortably and look over the shoulder of the artist during the demo. I’m so glad that you are presenting these workshops!”
” From personal experience as a repeat attendee, let me give you a heads-up…you will be totally hooked on V.I.E.W. soon. The quality and breadth of instructors and lessons is impressive, and the customer service is exceptional.”.
