The class is a little bit crowded and there is a lot of waiting time for machines. Wish there was more hand tooling for the project. Mostly simple machine operations. Steve (instructor) is a very good teacher though. I liked him.

Great intro class but there were perhaps too many students. It felt a bit rushed.

Teacher was extremely disorganized and scattered. Spent 1/3 of the time watching her look for her supplies. Time would and better spent watching YouTube videos and sketching for free.

The instructor, Chris Papas, was not professional. He seemed to know the material (I don't know enough myself to be a judge of that-hence I was in Illustrator I). He was outright rude to students many times, seemed to despise being there. I actually continued Illustrator at a FIT competitor in the city because I didn't like him. Why should I pay to be mistreated while learning? If I knew Adobe, I wouldn't be there. Hire an instructor with a more positive and professional attitude.

Very good class, but wish it had been 5 or 6 sessions instead of 4, as we were rushing through things on the last day
