Student testimonials: 

"Having the ability to ask for instruction during every step of the art making process is invaluable.  Howard was able to show me tricks of the trade as I run into the circumstances that call for them.  Without this guidance, I spend hours trying to get through confusing parts of making a painting. 
Watching Howard create art and his process is also invaluable.  I now have the beginning to end comprehension of creating an art piece.. Being in the studio environment with Shari and Howard helps alot to see what I will be dealing with in my career in the business of art. "

"I cannot thank Howard and Shari enough for this amazing course. I am working on getting the money to take it again! This course is worth every penny! If you are trying to take your illustrations to the next level, this is the class."

" Just wanted to write and say thank you for the wonderful workshop this past week.  I had a blast, and learned a lot.  It was wonderfully structured, and well executed. "
