Student Testimonials 

"Thank you for a wonderful workshop.  It was just right for me.   I was worried before the class about keeping up but as it progressed I was not overwhelmed.   We had the right amount of breaks and I loved the day between the two classes to paint on my own with the Zoom instructions.

 Lian is helpful, positive and polite.  He is a very good teacher and he explains things very well.  It was just perfect and I will be taking more classes.  You all handled the Zoom format very well."

"I love taking workshops from Lian. He presents his technique clear with additional comments as he demonstrates what we need to do. I love the online instruction where you can see the demonstration over and over! Definitely taking more of his classes."

"Just a note to let you know I think the composition class today was phenomenal! Very successful! It gave me a much clearer understanding of composition concepts I didn’t understand before. Now I’ve got to practice, practice, practice!"
