The class was supper inspiring. James was so nice to me. He even extended the hours! James has so many amazing artworks himself. His studio is cute and warm. He not only teaches you how to draw, he also teaches you the philosophy from drawing. It’s very amazing. I highly recommend you to take his class! It’s 100% worthy of your time and money.

James and his wife were especially talented and motivating to us! He worked with us individually, focusing on what could be better and where to focus our attention in an analytical manner. I would recommend taking lessons from him, especially if you're open to learning more about drawing.

James is so patient. After a brief tour of the studio, James gave us instruction and we learned by actually sketching. It was a fun learning experience.
