Reviewed by Andrew P. on 2/18/2020
As an artist who works with a lot of different materials, it was awesome to be able to explore a new medium that allows for quick drying and lots of exploration into texture shape and drippage. Aaron was a great workshop leader. He was very attentive and in tune with when I wanted guidance and when I wanted some freedom and independence. Highly recommend.
