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!

Attended: Clothing Reconstruction


Be sure to bring not only the pieces of clothing that you would like to deconstruct (the more the better and the base article should fit you), you will also need to bring other sewing supplies as very few are provided. Bring scissors, thread, a seam ripper, straight pins, chalk, etc. I would have liked a bit more structured teaching in this class. Though the instructors are helpful, I am not sure that I gained any technical skills. This is more of a conceptual workshop.

This was a great class. I was just looking for a drawing outlet and got so much more. You will learn the basics in fashion drawing: how do draw on a figure and seasonal fashion styles to apply. The class served both beginners and experienced. The instructor may appear to go quickly but he will give you time to draw and create. The four hours of class was enjoyable and relaxing. Enjoyed the class so much I want to continue practicing this style of drawing. Cheers!

It's not an easy class, I've used Photoshop and Illustrator for years. This is still hard for me. But with hard work and studying, I'm doing fine. I've already signed up for the next level.

Attended: Learn to Sew Like a Pro


Really great class and awesome teacher just slightly over crowded (many students with one off questions / hard to get necessary attention and hard to get access to overlock machine plus irons).

I loved the classes because I didn’t know anything about using a sewing machine and now I know it.

It was good, but slow because we were all in very different levels. The professor wasn’t very nice... I felt like I couldn’t ask him anything...
