Online Painting Studio
with Andrew Sookrah


Thursdays, March 4 to April 8


3 to 6 pm (EST)

I found it engaging and really liked watching the demo by Andrew. I felt quite engaged—in some ways even more so than in face-to-face classes as I felt I could see “up close” what Andrew was doing in terms of paint mixing and brush strokes
