Really enjoyed this class and meeting Livia Cetti - she is so talented and engaging. She is a great teacher and really knows how to make her craft so accessible to first time paper artists! Looking forward to trying this on my own and also taking another class with her.
Good class, but not enough time to complete a drawing, too many students for sufficient time with instructor for demonstrations, and inadeqate seats (without backs) and no instruction to bring a lawn chair. My back began bothering me immediately. I would have liked to finish my drawing, or at least get close to finished.
The Class was a full day in Bronx botanical garden and I think it could have been much better used. The teacher was very knowledgeable and I'm certain he's a good photographer, but not as good in teaching. I think it a bit if a waste of time that the teacher don't actually teach, while you do the exercises outside. The same thing with the hours inside in class, could have been better used and not so concentrated on technical issues without giving concrete examples. Also would have benefited from more discussions between group and teacher.
It was a great time with my daughter.. Fun time.
Wonderful experience. I learned so much in just 5 classes. The space was great too. Definitely taking the fall course.
Great! The class was well-organized and inspiring. Thank you Rose!
Loved this class. Easy to follow and super informative. Was very impressed with the flowers and supplies that were provided. Took home a beautiful bouquet and a lot of useful tips that I can actually use.
The teacher was outstanding.
This class was not very helpful to take individually (not part of the 3 course day) as some questions that were asked of the instructor was given the answer of "that will be covered in the next class after this one today." I was not taking the additional classes so felt like I was missing out on valuable information. Also, the instructor simply read the slides out loud and barely added any additional info that was not listed there. It would have been a better use of time to just be send the slides to review on my own and then come equipped with any questions for a discussion with the class.
