Attended: Introduction to Woodworking: Side Table

Great class, I messed up the bridle joint (too tight) and left it together but unglued over the week between classes, leading to a cracked table leg. Steve fixed it and showed me where the problem in the joint was. Learned a lot of woodworking techniques!!!

Enjoyed this course very much. It gave me enough insight whether to pursue more in the craft on a professional level.


Attended: Beginner's Fashion Drawing Studio

Second time I’m taking this class and it’s absolutely fun! As a total beginner I learned so much in such a short time!! Professor Broadway is an expert and very knowledgeable and gifted and I would recommend this class to anyone! Thank you!

Maria G.

Attended: Illustrator II: Graphic Design (Mac)

This class was great! It was easy to follow and instruction was on point. The instructor was good at covering things more than once and answered questions when necessary. He also offered tips that were not part of the curriculum. The reason why I didn't give it 5 stars is because we sometimes went from one top to the next quickly but like I said he was good at giving us enough time to catch up to understand. I enjoyed my class so much that I signed up for the following one.

Attended: Introduction to Storyboard Art

Joan is phenomenal! A classic art teacher who knows how to help her students grow on an individual level. She met every student at there level of ability and we were all improving - between her tips on drawing and depth of industry knowledge. What a pleasure!
