      I think Melanie is one of the best teachers I’ve ever had. I appreciate both her thoroughness and attention to detail!

    • Neil Campbell

      Having a specialist such as Melanie provide insight into her way of creating portraits was very interesting and valuable, and the techniques she showed were incredibly useful too.

    • Ilona Winkler

      Mélanie is by far the best instructor I’ve had at CGMA so far. She is an amazing artist and shares her knowledge! And she also gives helpful feedback, like really telling you what does not work in your drawing and why.

    • Agnes Buronyi

      Melanie is a very nice and helpful person—she actively participated on the forum, answered every question, and her feedbacks were great. She really cared about her students and helped us to improve.

    • Alessandra Divizia

      Amazingly talented artist, and very kind and thoughtful teacher.
