What students are saying...
This is a very fun class! I took this class because I want to get better at drawing animals and Terry's style is so simple and cute! Great for beginners or advanced artists - anyone who wants to stretch their imagination and draw to make people smile. I will definitely be using her tips and ideas in my sketchbook in the future. -RJ
Such a great class! Wonderful examples that make it seem possible for anyone to make great illustrations. I can't wait to see what I create! -Terri F.
This is such an inspiring class, Terry’s enthusiasm launched me out of my artist block. I LOVED everything about it and will watch it again. Thank you Terry for another fun filled captivating and awesome class! -Flo F.
