We had to either stand or sit on the floor the entire class .. seriously , I think we should have been informed of this fact in advance .

It was a fun class. I do not recommend buying paint supplies through them (could have gotten the same supplies cheaper on Amazon). I do wish we could have gone over more techniques, as we just freestyled a landscape. Overall, enjoyable experience!

What I loved: The instructor was really high energy and helpful throughout the class. What wasn’t so great: I was disappointed that there was no real instruction. The teacher described all of the materials available to us but it was basically paint, magazines, yarn, tissue paper and some gels and pumice. It seems more like a class geared towards kids.

It was my first time going to a paint night and the instructor made the experience better because she was very encouraging and patient! The setting was also great where it wasn’t over crowded which I feared. Overall a very pleasant experience and tons of fun!

The teacher was AMAZING, and so was the experience of being in the museum. However, my one complaint is that this class needed way more than 2 hours. For the price and work we were doing it was not even close to enough time to complete one project, let along two. The other beginner's classes I have taken, which were mostly just drawing stages of still lives, were 3 hours, and some even let us run over. They should consider either lowing the price or making the class longer, as a trip downtown to the museum and then to spend under two hours drawing felt a bit wasteful.
