Reviewed by Anonymous on 6/17/2017
This class was awful. I would strongly recommend against taking it. I almost left multiple times. It was two and a half hours long and we literally spent less than an hour actually using Photoshop - the rest was a lecture on the most common-sense basics of design (like, I have no design experience, but this stuff was REALLY simple and a huge waste of time, and way too much time was spent on it.) Of the time spent actually using the program, the actual "creative brief" activity was left to the last fifteen minutes of the class, so there was no time to actually complete it - there was barely even time to start - because the instructor personally thought it was dumb. Speaking of which, the instructor was UNBEARABLE. She yelled the entire time in a voice that sounded like a valley girl on helium. I am seriously unimpressed and would really think twice before taking another class at General Assembly after this.
