"This was such a fun class! Thank you for the instruction and all the examples. It was all so helpful! I’ll be sure to recommend it to friends in the future."

Laura

"This was so far my best investment this year, it saved me a ton of time and hassle. I’m not sure if i could figure it out all by myself. I was a bit concerned if i can follow through, because i don’t use my english very often & is not that perfect, but you made it as easy as pie, you truly are a blessed teacher."

Noa

"I have learned so much and had so much fun in your graphic design classes! Your teaching style is fast, thorough and informative all at the same time! Thanks again for the great class and making me realize how much I can actually use Illustrator for!"

Rachel

"I just wanted to thank you so much for putting the class together. In the past I had stumbled through teaching myself paint.net and GIMP but neither really ever did the things I really wanted it to do. Having someone to actually teach me the basics of Illustrator was wonderful! I feel like I was able to hit the ground running and spent SO MUCH time just playing—it’s so much fun!I also want to thank you because this class has finally given me the confidence I needed to move forward with my business, The Seasonal Supper. This is our first attempt to monetize the blog and while I joke that I have zero business sense, I do have pretty high standards for cute design so I knew that our product at least had to be cute!"
