Attended: Basic SketchUp

Amrapali was a great instructor! I would suggest if you see some one is the class is learning quicker then others you incentivize that person to assist the instructor and give them a discount off the advance/intermediate follow up course so she can cover more ground in the 3 classes.

Attended: The Not-So-Secret Art of Choosing Color

Attended: Styling the Interiors Photoshoot

This class was extremely instructive. The teacher is passionate by his job and he shares his enthusiasm really well. He gave us many tips to use as interior designers. I, highly, recommend this class. However, the school is as messy as usual : we spent 20 minutes in a classroom that was not the right one... The course had started in a different location. Thanks to one of the students, we were aware of the issue, but me missed a part of the course. Typical, at NYSID...
