Reviewed by Ali A. on 5/3/2019
It was a great experience, James was a great artist and teacher and super nice. The please from the inside was above my expectations, I thought it would be just a normal school but actually it was where James lives and it was full of great art pieces that was done by James, his wife and there students, there were a couple of rooms each one of them is for a different type of art. It was a good experience and I totally recommend it.
