Watercolor Painting - Beginning

Yulia Chubotin watercolor tulip

Excellent all around.

I love everything about this class. Yulia is amazing. Fun, well-structured, informative.

The art history at the beginning of the class was a good segue into each class.

It's so wonderful to have an experienced instructor/artist who gives us the right instruction/feedback, and also it's comforting to have a loosely-knit community of students.

Yulia was a very knowledgeable teacher.

Loved the variety in each class and learning to paint with different techniques. Loved that we did some art history too.

I liked how each lesson was perfectly scaffolded by itself and as a part of the whole Yulia is an organized teacher; as a teacher myself, I especially appreciate that. I look forward to taking another class in the future!  

Hats off to the instructor who's made an effort to provide us with the best possible experience for an online class!

Surprisingly and remarkably good.

Instructor is patient and friendly.
