The instructor was knowledgable and interesting. I learned a lot!
I feel a lot more comfortable sewing. The instructor was knowledgeable and helpful. However, the classes did feel rushed.
The instructor is passionate and the articulate clearly. Small class size is great. Maybe could have a class syllabus earlier. Overall, would recommend to friends.
It was an excellent class. The instructor, Chris Papas, was able to talk us through Illustrator tools as both reminders and new concepts. I learned a great deal. I'd recommend it.
Great class to meet new people, collaborate, and do some styling for your portfolio! Recommended!
Amazing class, great combination of useful information and hands-on training for stylists. Nacy, the instructor, was wonderful!
Class was mostly discussion-based, and rather light on content.
Teacher was disappointing at best. Scattered, lectures using materials that are not up to date, instructions confusing. Wastes time promoting his Wordpress class. Learned very little.
This class was very helpful for someone who didn’t know anything about illustrator previously. The TA was also great with coming around and helping to explain things if you got lost during the class.
