The class was great. I was surprised at how much Allison could cover in 40 minutes. I learned new tips and a new technique, and made a pretty nice little painting in that short time. I'd call myself an 'advanced beginner' so I have a lot to still learn and would enjoy more of these.

Loved this class! Enjoyed how it was a longer speciality class, Allison was very clear and clearly well versed in her craft. She took questions mid class even when she was unsure if we would make it through all the material, and we still did sail through it all with her patient and kind instruction. I learned a lot and feel inspired to practise. Thank you !!

I'm so glad I took this class with Allison! I'd never taken any art classes before, but was always curious, and am so impressed by how much Allison taught us in just 4 sessions. I'm actually able to shade things to look 3D and I've learned techniques that will help me continue to progress in skill level. Thank you, Allison!

Class: Drawing Techniques with Allison Maletz

Allison is an amazing teacher! I'm so impressed with what she taught me as a beginner in my very first drawing/art class. I never thought I could draw anything that would look 3D or realistic, but she offers fantastic step-by-step guidance, and it turns out with her instruction I can do a lot more than I thought! I'll definitely take more classes with Allison.
