I really enjoyed the class with Vlada. The venue was comfortable, easy to find and relaxed, and I learned lots I can apply to future projects. We got lots of one to one attention, practised the basics, then were guided through sketching and colouring our final pieces. I'm thrilled with how mine came out and have been practising at home since. I'd love to do another class with Vlada. Thanks for a lovely afternoon that quite frankly flew by!

Vlada was a star! I felt super comfortable in the class and greatly appreciated learning new things about markers. I also felt she guided me very well through the process of making the art, from sketching through light/shadow to blending. I started off the class clueless about markers and had already developed some confidence by the end. I strongly recommend Vlada's class!

The class was great. My friend and I didn't have any experience in either drawing or marker sketching, and we were extremely pleased with our final piece of art, which was a realistic, mouth watering, pinterest-type doughnut. The teacher was very educational, going step by step to explain the marker medium, as well as the different drawing techniques such as identifying shadows and lights, and creating geometrical shapes without specific tools. Overall, highly satisfied with the class, I would definitely recommend even if you are a complete beginner, or if you haven't experienced yet the magic of marker sketching.
