Stefan was very good at transferring his knowledge of , and teaching the various techniques. I feel much more confident to explore these techniques and develop my own style of painting. Stefan was very encouraging and skilled at providing individual, instructional guidance and ideas to help me have a very positive experience. I look forward to his next class. Thank you😀😀
