What students are saying
"I came away from this class with exactly what I wanted and more. I certainly acquired confidence in myself to be able to draw. "

"I was surprised at the effectiveness of the techniques that were taught by the instructor. It was amazing to see the pictures I could create during the class."

"Jim is an awesome teacher with a nice balance of critique and praise. He is a wonderfully encouraging teacher!"

"Jim was instructive and encouraging. I became less afraid of putting marks on paper and therefore, more expressive. I learned a lot about myself and drawing."

"Jim is an amazing teacher who gives his full talent towards the enrichment of his students. I have learned so much from him and would gladly take the class again."

"This class was an excellent overview of my college classes. A great place to "begin again" with my art experiences. I really enjoyed meeting new friends while expanding my knowledge."
