FAVORITE class so far!

This is my favorite class so far. Carmen did such a great job teaching! She is very patient and makes sure to stop and check in and see if there are any questions. She made drawing glass seem so much easier than it looks. She gave such great tips and advice for working on glass and shinny surfaces. I had never worked on a sanded paper before and there was a great explanation on how to work on a sanded surface with advise and tips for different problems that might occur and ways we could handle them. The class was taught at a good pace and the instructions were clear. I really love the class and look forward to taking more classes taught by Carmen!

Glistening Cherries tutorial

This workshop was a stretch for me as a portrait artist. The challenge of rendering cut glass was all I thought it would be. The instructor was very thorough and detailed in her presentation. I learned more tips and techniques that I can apply to other colored pencil projects. Learning through Zoom is another challenge but so thankful that we have it. I do miss the live classroom interaction. Learning from others in person is a plus. It also lessons the stress level by sharing any challenges the we may be experiencing. I had some technical problems and had to do some work arounds. Carmen was very understanding and helped me with the challenge I had. My finished art was compromised but that is part of the learning experience and self acceptance, perfectionism and all. I would take another of her classes. Carmen is a wealth of experience, talent and teaching ability.

Glistening Cherries-wonderful class!

Glass, especially cut-glass, was something I avoided drawing, as it appeared far too complicated for my novice skills. However, Carmen’s class made this daunting subject quite doable for me. I especially enjoyed working on black paper. A great class!

Loved the class!

I had a great time despite the fact that I felt in over my head for some of it, but I guess that is the whole point of learning something new! Carmen was insightful, and ever patient with us as we forged ahead learning not just how to paint this beautiful bowl of cherries, but how to do this in the time of Covid - think Zoom and how some people are more proficient in it's use than others. And some of us were having equipment issues as well At any rate, it was well worth my time and money, and I look forward to perfecting the technique of painting reflections someday!
