Did not worth $75!!!!! Thought supplies will be given to take home. Didn't learn anything & was not educated about the tools you need for anime drawings. And definitely was not educated about anime techniques that were advertised. This was more of a day care center than an actual teen anime art class. Waste of time and money.. Could learn much more on YOUTUBE. Very disappointing

This was an awesome class. I found it was best to consider it as part of a series as some paintings take more than one session. Thank you to instructor Sally!

I rated this class a 3 out of 5 because I was hoping to learn something new about the drawing app and how to use it, but all we used was a few brushes. Over all the class was pretty fun, and I liked the warm up that we did.

The class was great - relaxing and fun. Learned quite a bit too. Managed to finish a piece during each class, which was great.

Cannot recommend this class or this studio enough. Chris Anderson is a thoughtful and wonderful teacher - she mixes theory (serious art theory!) with playfulness and fun in a spectacular way. She goes above and beyond. Highly recommend.
