My 14 year old daughter, Elena, really enjoys the class and is engaged. She is very shy and self conscious but proud of the work she did. She likes the instructor and would like to take a class with her again. As a parent, overhearing the class as I run around the house, Anita seems to be a very encouraging instructor able to point out the students' capabilities while informing them in a positive way of improvements.
The only thing I'd improve is the knowledge of improving my zoom abilities. We had bumps in the road on our end.

Anita makes me feel that all things are possible in learning to draw and color flowers. I am learning a lot about techniques and Remain inspired that I can make art.
Perhaps another hour to go deeper into technique, but an hour is good for introducing me to drawing flowers. I love Anita’s classes. I am always left wanting to learn more.

I learned so much more about illustrating flowers, and about the process itself. Anita and all group members were very encouraging and positive.
It would be great if there was a "next step" class, botanical (or other) drawing that picks up where the beginner class ends.
