Loved:

The speakers were authentic, and interesting. There was no activity, although the slide show(s) were captivating.

Improvements:

Prior to the conversation/event, an informative slide show—something that participants could have viewed in advance, could have been made available. Under that circumstance, I might have been able to participate by asking a couple of questions. I would have liked to have done that.

Loved:

It was very exciting to hear about the work of these 3 artists. And the MC was exceptional (and also an artist!)

Improvements:

I wished that I had a better idea of the audience. Felt sort of alone. Even a number that told how many were tuned in would have been an improvement for me

Loved:

Rebeca is a fabulous teacher. She is very well organized, and the flow of her classes is great. She allows time for demonstration, questions, work, and sharing in just the right proportions. I am never bored for a minute in her classes.

Improvements:

I liked that this was a 2 session class, but part of me really wanted a third session.

Loved:

Terrific class. So much great information in almost too short a time. Rebeca is a wonderful teacher— knowledgeable, fun, and supportive, and she provide excellent information on online videos and book sources related to the topic in addition to a good class.

Improvements:

Not much — Rebeca really thinks about what works.

Rebecca is a very good instructor who speaks carefully and slowly so she is easy to understand. Demonstrations were excellent

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.
