Art Class Testimonials

"This is the first time I had an art class that taught watercolor and I found it to be very informative. I feel I have a greater understanding of colors and how to use them. I felt challenged in a good way, and even though I didn't finish my art piece in class. I now have the knowledge I need to finish it on my own."
