I had a phenomenal time in this class, and I’m so sad it’s ending. The instructor is funny, personable, knowledgeable, and is always responsive an attentive in and outside of the classroom. He puts a lot of effort and care into critiques and genuinely cares about the improvement of his students. I can’t express enough what a positive experience this was!
This has been a fantastic experience! Mitchell has been an incredible teacher. He takes the time to give each student detailed feedback. He is easily available if we have any questions or are struggling with an assignment. His lectures were extremely helpful and I learned so much. I am so grateful for this experience and would love to take more classes in the future!
[This course] focused on the mental process behind creating a piece instead of just technical tricks, which made it one of the most useful classes I’ve ever taken in terms of working through those stubborn issues I have as an artist.
[This course] taught me how to focus in on the storytelling aspect of a piece and to always ask myself: is this effectively telling a story.
Very helpful, and could motivate students whilst giving very much needed feedback to keep the learning a fun experience!
