I am surprised as to why so many people have left mediocre reviews on this place. I am an artist myself and I wanted to maintain my skill set, as well as try some new classes. You get what YOU put in here - If you want to make the class important and if you want to learn and improve - then YOU have to want that. No teacher in the world can make anyone a great artist, chef, doctor etc. You have you put your hard work and desire into achieving your artistic goal. So for someone to come here expecting the teachers to just make you talented is fooling themselves. The teachers here are volunteering their time to inspire and motivate, but under no circumstances will they sugarcoat things or "give" you all these skills you think you can just learn after 10 classes. Talent, takes years. Art takes time. Be proud and thankful that this place has withstood the rent costs of Palo Alto, and support this community place. I have been hearing that numerous students complain about the teachers, and the thing is, to be an artist, means to deal with critics. If you dont like what someone says about your art, then you dont have a tough skin for life. And trust me, youll need one. Do not be offended with critiques. They are there to improve. Teachers are there to motivate, not give you some unobtainable ideal of "knowing art" in 10 short classes.
A clean, brightly lit gallery and school offering workshops and classes in many kinds of art media. Located in downtown Palo Alto near lots of nice restaurants, and shops. Check out the art made by local and national artists, sign up for a workshop let by experts in their field.
Good works, nice people!
