Review of Online Drawing Course with Ash Nitkin:

I have been enrolled in Mr. Nitkin's 8-week long adult online drawing class and thoroughly enjoyed it.  Mr. Nitkin is a dedicated, resourceful instructor who provides positive constructive feedback.  The class size was small so he was able to cater the subject matter to my preferences and we worked at a pace that was manageable.  I have not considered myself an artist but with Ashley's guidance I am gaining more confidence in my drawing abilities.  I recommend this course for anyone wishing to begin or further their drawing experiences.
