Past Student Reviews:
“It was a fun and energetic class!”
“The instructor had very clear samples, labeled demos, and clear guides. We had a different skills coming in and our knowledge base varied, when I a total novice struggled- the instructor was encouraging and walked me through the techniques while scaffolding the others proceeded ahead, impressive teaching.”
“Overall, really great experience!!!”
