Wonderful creative course based on expression. It is more a general information course to inspire you and opening you up to the freedom of creative expression. This is not art theory or how to draw kind of course but does show you how to explore art. Definitely worth doing.
Good course. Amazing how much it covers. I noticed som negative comments from a minority of people who signed up for the course. They are forgetting one fact in my opinion.That is, this is an introductory class for begginers. One sentece the instructor mentioned in module 1: " you need to be Patient, Persistent and to PRACTICE.." I also noticed that are all start with capital P. So give em a break and be positive. This also starts with a "P"
Easy to follow and friendly course. I love how Mr. Jusri makes you feel comfortable and wants you to understand very complicated topics in art and design in a very enjoyable way. This is a course for beginners as mentioned. I hope to see soon part 2, 3 and even 4.
