Invaluable instructor, great class

Invaluable, MFA level instruction, such a great class. Instructor is clear, detailed. and patient. Have learned so many tools, and will go over photoshop instructions again. Hope Craftsy hires him to teach more courses!

Course is a gift I have found in a place I had never known. Good bibliography, may I add if fellow students want more on subject: The Cambridge Companion to Allegory. Allegorical painting is also my way of revealing and not. I am working in oils and found charcoal drawing large scale and "wallpapering" the drawings my work process, I am looking forward, next session for me, learning photoshop.
