    A really fun learning experience

    What a delightful teacher Cynthia is! Great teacher on how and why she applies colors to achieve a painterly look. Not only do you get terrific tips on color pencil techniques, she makes the class fun so time just flies by.

    This class is a must take for anyone desiring to improve their colored pencil skills. It is appropriate for all skill levels. As a beginner, I appreciated Cynthia's teaching ability and her willingness to share with the class what she has learned through her years of experience as a colored pencil artist. The class was intense and very challenging, but Cynthia was very patient with each of us, not wanting anyone to fall behind. She meticulously took us step by step through the process and made sure there was time to ask questions along the way. The glass was particularly difficult, yet she literally drew one line at a time and carefully described what she was doing as she progressed us along. I was amazed at the results. Cynthia took time to critique our work after each class. She was very encouraging and kind. She engaged the class in conversation and made us feel welcomed and comfortable. Anyone who is interested in expanding their colored pencil skills should consider taking this class. I have completed less than 15 colored pencil pieces and this is what I was able to accomplish with Cynthia's teaching.

    I learned so much!

    This was the perfect class for me. I am a beginner and am definitely heavy handed. Cynthia's instruction was so clear and I greatly appreciated her willingness to provide critiques as we went along. I loved the fact that she provided a "workshop cheat sheet" that broke down the instruction in her tutorial booklet. I found this very helpful especially when we continued working on our own. I also liked having a day between the classes. This was a 3 day workshop, and I worried about being able to keep up...that day between enabled me to do so. Cynthia also provided tips as we went along that I found very informative. I do believe that anyone no matter their experience will learn so much in this class. Thank you Cynthia...I am looking forward to taking another class with you.

    One of the BESt!!!

    This was a labor intensive workshop over three classes.. with a day between each class... which was perfect for catching up between classes. Cynthia is simply put.. a natural teacher.. with a gift of being able to communicate her even greater gift... Artiste extraordinaire I don’t naturally have a heavy hand so I had some trepidation in the beginning... but it worked out just fine. I love how she took the time to show how to correct mistakes.. and in doing so.. instilled more courage ... which lets face it.. is almost foundational to the artistic endeavor. You’ll LOVE this class!!!

    Great Zoom Class!

    Best three days ever!. Cynthia is a super instructor with clear instructions and demos and excellent pacing that made it so easy to keep up with her. She gave many very helpful tips that can be used in any projects. The written instructions were detailed and easy to follow. Cynthia's critiques were positive with suggestions that could be used to enhance the work. I love Zoom classes as they eliminate hours spent travelling, waiting in airports and time away from family. I hope they will continue even after Covid is under control. Thanks for a wonderful class, Cynthia! Looking forward to doing more of them with you. Thanks, Anne for making this class available.
