Past Student Reviews: 

“Enjoyable vibe." 

“Grendl is a GREAT teacher.”

“Everything was laid out and ready to go, we had to make our own grid on the provided paper which is a good practice for doing later at home. Loved that we had warm up exercises and finally but definitely not least, Grendl gave us the tools (pen, holder, ink, ink jar, and two different kinds of paper) to take home so we could continue the work after the class”

“Instructor was knowledgeable and fun.”
