Francesca is a wonderful teacher! She’s patient, encouraging and possesses a wealth of knowledge. I was a beginner but didn’t feel flustered or self-conscious because she made the environment so relaxing and inviting. I highly recommend Francesca as a teacher!!
Fabulous teacher. Fun and interesting. Great class!
Course instructor was very knowledgeable, warm and friendly in presenting the material. I hope to take another class soon.
Francesca is such an experienced and insightful teacher! I had so much fun and learned to look and draw in new ways.
I'm a beginner and this class was awesome! Francesca was welcoming & friendly and gave me useful advice for improving my drawings. I will definitely be taking her courses again in the future. Highly recommend!
Really fun and a great way to spend time at the Met. Francesca is great!
My friend and I took Francesca's "Learn to Draw at the Met" class last week and we seriously had so much fun! I felt that she really cared for her students' by taking the time to work with us one-on-one. Thank you so much!! Highly recommended.
I had and absolutely lovely time drawing at the Met. I have been to the Met many times but this was the first time I stopped to draw. Drawing with an instructor opened a whole new way to observe art. Lo is a knowledgeable and skilled instructor. I highly recommend this experience with Lo for anyone wanting to gain a greater understanding of art at the Met
I would recommend this class to all of my children and all of their children. Wonderful! Delightful!
I really enjoyed drawing with Francesca at the MET. She is a warm, kind, and very knowledgeable teacher. The class felt meditative and really peaceful. I’d highly recommend this class!
