About the Instructor: 

"Maria is a lovely person and a very gifted teacher and artist. She taught me new drawing techniques that I will now use when I am sketching. Maria was very patient with me and I really appreciated it. It was also evident that she clearly knows her art history, giving me a personalized tour of certain exhibits at the Met where she shared some interesting information, I didn't know about some pieces in the collection there. I would highly recommend Maria and this experience to anyone interested in art and drawing". - This is a customer review.

What others have said about this event

Melody Zhang
Throughout my life, art has been one of the greatest things that I could ever wish for. And although many have talent, there's always some room for improvment. I feel like taking this class really helped with anatomy and just technique, and I now realize how much this class helped me to improve. From sketching models to having a really great time, I really think that this class is one of the greatest you can find in New York City.
