Great class. Excellent video demonstrations, really useful exercises, lots of encouragement, and helpful critiques of our work. Sharon was really responsive to suggestions and adapted to the needs of our class. Super fun. Planning to take her next class too.

Great start to begin drawing!

Great start to begin drawing! Sharon breaks it down and helps students see objects in a different way. I enjoyed these classes and will continue to work on these techniques and use the tools to improve. Thank you Sharon for reigniting my interest in drawing  and creating.
