    Inspiring! I had no idea I could!


    She is an excellent teacher here. She got me to do things I didn’t think I could do. It was easy, and it was fun.

    Great Explanations!


    Great explanations that I’ve never heard before that cleared up some of the why and how. Loved the review at the end where Alexandra went on to explain how you can use are in different ways, and named some digital apps for art. Thanks for a great class Alexandra!

    Amazing and so Fun!


    This is a really excellent course for beginners. I FINALLY understand why I am drawing like a six year old, and believe in myself to do something different. But also, that if I keep drawing like a six-year old, it is OK too. I love the progression, exploration of art theory, art therapy and an assortment of basic skills. Thank you so much, Alexandra for your positive energy and wonderful teaching skills. I look forward to seeing your Intermediate Level Course!
