Alumni Spotlight

What a productive class. Valuable knowledge taught in an engaging, easy to follow way. Fast or slow, what made it great was that whatever your pace, your skills were usable immediately. I always left with some new skill to improve my work, some alternate method to try, something tangible and demonstrable to show for the time.
