I am a true beginner to watercolor, and Kiya Nicole's class was the perfect introduction. I have wanted to learn watercolor painting for years but was always a little too intimidated by other courses I saw offered. Kiya Nicole's focus on experimentation and her ability to describe what she's doing in a way we could emulate it made watercolor painting feel very approachable and relaxing. Too, I was very appreciative of her choice in the materials we needed for class because her suggestions were a good balance of quality and affordability. I enjoyed the class so much, in fact, that I signed up to take it a second time just to be able to pick up on some of the nuances she shared that I wasn't able to explore the first time. Highly recommend!

My kids enjoyed this class with Kiya! She is very patient and walked them through a guided activity but encouraged them to paint whatever they felt like if they wanted to do something different. She taught them some fun techniques (splatter was the favorite) and provided very encouraging feedback at the end of the class for all of the students. Unfortunately we had to leave early due to internet issues, but they both would love to take another class with her in the future!

Wish class had been a bit smaller. Wish instructor didn't compliment everybody's work....mine was bad and I needed guidance.

The teacher was wonderful, very engaging and helpful but maybe an hour is just too short. We didn't really learn anything, just making marks on paper. Not enough content. But maybe the idea is just to get you started, to dip your brush in paints for the first time. I'm glad I did it though because it reminded me of how much I like to paint.

I think I just reviewed this in a preceding email. I think the instructor made a very positive contribution for each person. She was enthusiastic, clear, patient,. Her demonstrations were extremely helpful. And she took the guesswork out of starting with a new medium about which I had no information or experience. The results for me was that I want to do more Studies in watercolor technique

I enjoyed the teacher and the techniques. I thought she was a good communicator. I like the demonstrations. My only problem was that I’m not confident about using a Zoom, and I deleted myself before the class was over. The problem was I couldn’t get back into the classroom I was somehow locked out!! I was very upset and disappointed. I didn’t know how to get back in. Could you help because I have more classes coming up and I don’t want to do that again. Also I’m not sure how to join the conversation? Do I raise my hand and wait for recognition or is there some computer access that I don’t know about right on zoom? Could you please help?! Thanks so much

Good introduction - wish the course was a bit longer - sometimes the lessons went too fast. The instructor was very helpful and creative.

This class had everything. It was both relaxed, escapist and informative. Nicole is a naturally friendly and open person so it came very easily for her to give encouragement. The only complaint, by the fault of no one is the limitations of two demensionality when you’re dealing with texture or liquids like paint.

Teacher was clear in her instructions, pleasant to work with—nice soothing creative time, and encouraging. Only issue, not her fault, the limits of Zoom in sharing work, and seeing other’s work to learn from each other.

Kiya was amazing... she took a rather intimidating process and broke it down so someone like me (with no formal art training) was comfortable to engage with foreign concepts! And she was so patient, checked on us regularly to see if we were tracking with her, gave further clarification and feedback that drew me in rather than making me self conscious. I plan to take more classes using this forum. Thank you for adjusting your classes so they are accessible during this time of quarantine.

The class was well done and as a complete beginner, it gave me the knowledge to start enjoying the painting process. I would have liked it to be 90 minutes as opposed to 60, especially because it was a full class so after all the questions were asked, it seemed a little rushed at the end.

This was a great class. I am not an artist although I wish that I were. The class was very 'zen'. Watercolors are very soothing especially during these challenging times. It was exactly what I needed. The instructor Kiya Nicole was very engaging and very talented too.

I very much enjoyed the class and came away with several helpful tips to improve landscape sketching. I especially liked the instruction about perspective and shading based on the chosen lighting on the landscape. The instructor was very calm and patient with the group and took time to answer any questions and offer suggestions to improve portions of a sketch. Specifically for me she helped me understand why the islands I had drawn in a lake really looked more like clouds. I followed her advice and they improved dramatically. I will definitely return for a future class. Thank you. James

We had some technical difficulties (video quality, disconnections) but overall they were resolved quickly and it was fun. It's pretty fast paced for a beginner class because you only have an hour. I sort of felt like I didn't get any better at drawing because there was limited time to do studies and practice the few techniques shown. However the instructor Kiya was very pleasant and easy to follow. In any case it was a good quarantine activity and I'm glad I did it.
