“Diego Chaves has a relaxed yet upbeat way of making us feel comfortable and confident about our drawing exercises. With enough good natured humor thrown in to help some of us overcome our insecurities about the quality of our work! ….He makes sure to connect with each student and offers his artistic expertise in a way that helps us understand how we can enhance or improve our drawing efforts. Everyone in the class really enjoyed Diego as our instructor.”

“I am so glad that I signed up for this course with Diego Chaves. He was a great instructor and gave really good direction. He deconstructed art into exercises which made it more attainable to the beginner as well experienced artists that might need to go back to the basics! I now look at art differently and approach art projects differently. Definitely a course that every aspiring artist or even established artist should take!”

“I LOVED this course. The instructor, Brenda Sullivan, was so knowledgeable in the history and background of this art. I hope that this is offered again so I may go and share the experience with more friends! Thank you.”

Felipe Zamora was an excellent instructor. I had no experience with painting and, with his instruction, was able to produce paintings that I am proud of. Would definitely take again to continue improving.
