PLAN

  • Robert Lawrence

    Mostly the course gave me the confidence to explore ideas and mediums. I improved my draftsmanship as I practiced the traditional drills from the course homework.

  • John D'Aquino

    Greatly. I absolutely wasn’t able to do what I’m capable of now. Still have a long journey but this was the best first step I’ve taken.
