Beginner's Drawing at the MET

Every session was well-paced, focused, and included a nice mix of demonstration and time to work/get feedback. The transition to online was completely smooth. Isaac clearly enjoys teaching, and enjoys his students. Thank you!

Absolutely loved this course. Chris was a really great tutor. He gave you the space to paint and then was there to guide, advise, encourage and suggest techniques to enrich your work. My son and myself stated the class in the studio but due to the Virus we had to shift classes to on line. The class didn’t skip a beat! Well done for making this so seamless. I will definitely be back for more!

The instructor led the class really well, teaching us different techniques by her doing them herself, and then letting us apply those techniques in our own unique ways. We all left the class with vastly different pieces, showcasing our individuality and unique visions.

Instructor was fun and kind. However, there was WAY too much drawing of plastic fruit, which is incredibly boring.

Isaac was a wonderful teacher!! It was a great beginners class. We drove in from nj and I would do it again. The pace information and the thoughtful instruction was just what we needed. The venue was quite spectacular also. Overall excellent! JoAnn
