Very good and fun class with Freddie, would love to take another class with him!
Painting in Watercolor - Level 1
Reviewed by Lysa D. on 11/1/2020
This was a good class. I learned a lot of techniques and skills. The teacher has a Bob Ross style. He mainly paints and you learn by watching. He is constantly changing what he does and adapting which although frustrating to some, helps the student learn to “go with the flow”.
Painting in Watercolor - Level 1
Reviewed by Judy M. on 10/26/2020
Freddie, I have enjoyed the Sunday watercolor classes because you are enthusiastic, intentional in instruction and lead us through a watercolor composition that allows each of us to be successful no matter our depth of experience. The course has been fun. In my case, this is a new experience and I have learned a lot about watercolor techniques and composition. My granddaughter anointed me the “Word Grandma” when she was 4 (she is now 14) as writing is my medium. The Pandemic gave me the opportunity to try a different mode of creativity and I’m loving it and will continue with drawing and watercolor courses. Thank you for opening the door for me to welcome watercolor into my life.
