    This was my second class with Jade Scarlett and she is a fantastic teacher! You can easily feel her passion for all things creative through her excitement for the class. She provides plenty of great materials to continue practicing and learning after the class is over. She explains the materials and techniques well and provides the necessary encouragement to keep going, even though we are beginners. I wish I had more time available to take even more of her classes - she is a pleasure and I'm so glad I was able to join her in this class.

    Jade is wonderful. She is enthusiastic and very thorough.
    I wasn’t quite sure what to expect and calligraphy is new to me but Jade is an energetic instructor who is able to deliver effectively online.

    I enjoyed Jade's class until I lost power. It then took me a few minutes to get back on line to continue. It wasn't her fault. She is very pleasant and seems like she is a great teacher. This actually is the first time I took a course online like this. I bet her classes, in person, are fun. Again, enjoyed it very much.

    Scarlett was enthusiastic, personable, patient, and explained each letter stroke slowly. There are many virtual calligraphy classes these days, but I'm so glad I took Scarlett's class. I plan to practice my letters and buy recommended pens. Then, I'll take her Part 2 Calligraphy class. Thank you, Scarlett!!!!!!

    I loved this class. Jade is a a great instructor, covering every detail, step by step. Additionally, she is enthusiastic, clearly loves teaching. Jade’s worksheets are very helpful, so detailed, making it easy to practice on my own. She encourages everyone to find their own personal style. I look forward to taking more classes with Jade.

    Loved this class, so helpful and easy to understand. I hope to take more classes soon!
    Calligraphy is a difficult art and takes daily practice but scarlet was very encouraging and very efficient. I feel like I’m off to a good start.
    Laurie S.
    She’s excellent !
    She was pretty thorough . I leaned the basics. although some people liked her enthousiasm, I did not but it did not stop her from teaching the skills.

    I enjoyed the Calligraphy class. It was very comprehensive and there were no lags during the 2 hours. The teacher was extremely well prepared and very likable. My only suggestion would be to include pauses or moments during the instruction for practice. Although with the amount of content covered, this might not be easily achieved. I learned a lot, but this skill requires practice. However, I just took the course yesterday and I have already used what I learned to write a title in my weekly planner. This is a sign of a well taught course.
    Ellie M.
    The instructor was thorough and patient with her explanations! I was pleasantly surprised that I could follow her and performed much better than I had initially expected! Now the rest is up to me to practice my newly learned skill!

    I have to admit that at first I was doubtful about a zoom conducted calligraphy course. I'm so glad that I took a chance and signed up for the was so much fun! The instructor was very good/helpful. I definitely will be taking the next level course
    I enjoyed this class so much! It was well organized, clear and conducted at a manageable pace to get all the instruction in. I would definitely recommend this class. Lovely teacher who is passionate about creativity.

    Jade is a great teacher. She knows how to make the information understandable. I would love to have the class divided into different sections of content, giving more time to work on the letters and their variations.
    Jessica O.
    Jade is incredibly talented and a ton of fun! I really enjoyed this class and bet you will, too.
    It was just ok. The teacher wasn’t very engaging, and maybe this type of course doesn’t call for a lot of interaction, but I found myself bored and looking at my watch an hour into the class. (One person actually left halfway through!) I think Jade tried to cram a lot of info in to two hours, and she was scrambling at the end to try to fit everything in. Finally, and less importantly, she asked us to buy all of these things for class, and I did. In reality, all we needed were pens and her printouts.

    I thought Jade did a wonderful job introducing us to calligraphy! It was a good pace and the materials she sent us before hand were well done. Also, she mentioned that she would send us a follow-up pdf by email. Can you please ensure that she has my email? [email protected]
