I had different expectations so that is why the low rating. I anticipated to write jokes, but instead it was to write a funny essay.
It was a good class. I learned a lot and had a lot of fun doing so. The instructor really broke down the patterns in how funny material is made. He also created an environment that made it easy to participate.
Jonathan is a gem. Incredibly passionate teacher who really breaks down what you need to know to have success in comedy. I never leave reviews on these sites but people need to know how good this class/teacher is. Already told all my friends so you folks might as well know too
Todd Carpenter was an excellent teacher. Each week, he displayed and reviewed different artists' work and taught a lesson (often, both came from our questions and requests). He allowed us to choose our own subjects, then answered questions and gave feedback as we progressed. Todd is the best art teacher I have had on Zoom.
Great for follow along painting. Learn tips and tricks as you go.
Barbara is amazing and fun to follow along, and after years of not touching my sewing machine (nor hand sewing), I feel confident enough to make some pants, totes and even explore new patterns! This class was the highlight of my weekends!
I thought the class was great. The teacher was awesome.
Really enjoyed this class. It was loose and casual but still instructive when it came to different brush/ texture techniques, color mixing, and a little bit of composition. Looking forward to taking the intermediate level class!
This was an amazing class. I loved it and Freddie is a wonderful teacher. He is encouraging, very knowledgeable and so friendly. I improved so much during the session. I am waiting for course horse to offer another session of the class.
This was just the class I have been looking for as a course in landscape painting at a more advanced level. Todd Carpenter is an outstanding teacher, beginning each class with a survey of paintings by other painters to show us how landscapes are treated. Then he gave us several landscape photos to choose from, and to paint as a challenge to our abilities. He also prepared extensive notes on how he would approach the paintings, which were extremely helpful. I tried a painting in black and white, which I'd never done, and learned a lot. He let us paint what we wanted and was always there with helpful comments and positive advice based on what we thought of our work. We all hoped he would teach a course again and were ready to sign up immediately! It was really a truly positive experience, and interesting people in the class who were all eager to learn more.
