Testimonials from our VIEWers

“Excellent online class. Shuang knows how to teach! Really – she breaks things down into the important and critical stuff in small bites and ignores the stuff that does not matter. I have learned so much in a very short period of time”.

“This is the first time I joined the VIEW Academy and attended Shuang Li’s Sketching with Styles class. I learned so many new techniques and love Shuang’s bold and organic styles of sketching. The critiques are very helpful which is usually unavailable from other online classes. Will definitely take more classes with VIEW Academy.”

Violet S.

“Shuang Li’s class was really great. LOTs of information and a great (fun) instructor. I loved that each day was focused on a specific technique (day 1 was ink and grey marker only, day 2 was ink and watercolor on hot press paper and day 3 was watercolor only). I also liked that she pushed all of us out of our comfort zone in a “safe” way to try things. I am committed to going forward without my trusty pencil and eraser for my urban sketches and head straight to the ink.  Looking forward to the August class and already blocked my calendar.”
