Rebeca's instruction is well planned and the pacing is good. I appreciate the seriousness of her approach to teaching. The class is work and sometimes difficult. She is there to give extra help when needed.

All the different subjects needed to draw better and the teacher’s demonstrations. Also how the teacher prepared the course. She’s very organized and the extra material she offers is great. Her explanations are very clear and she is patient and willing to go over something that is not clear yet.
Sometimes the teacher repeats an activity and/or models again and that becomes tedious. I think she assumes that it is not totally clear what she’s showing so she starts again the same thing. I would appreciate if she asks first and if only 2-3 students don’t get it, maybe leave the last minutes of the class for those that need more help? This way the rest of us can move ahead . That’s my only feedback for impro. I love my teacher and I think she’s great and I want to continue working with her.

Rebeca is very organized and skilled in all respects. The online material is comprehensive. The Zoom lessons are clear and exactly what I need. She always takes comments and questions. She gives helpful feedback by pointing out what is working for me and what I need to improve. Clearly, Rebeca spent a lot of time gathering resources to share with the class. Simply put, she is an extraordinary teacher. Plus, she has a sense of humor!

About Richmond Art Center
Richmond Art Center is the largest visual arts center in the East Bay of the San Francisco Bay Area, delivering exciting arts experiences to people of all ages who reflect the diverse richness of our community. We do this through onsite Studio classes and Exhibitions, and offsite Art in the Community programs.The Richmond Art Center originated in 1936, when local artist Hazel Salmi, who worked for the WPA, traversed the streets of Richmond with a suitcase packed with art supplies, eager to teach art to anyone interested. Today, everything we do at the Center continues to breathe life into Salmi’s original vision: That within every person lives an artist.
