The classes are really interesting. Our lecturer is the best lecturer I’ve ever had. No one has ever sat down and taught me how to paint like that. The lecturer not only taught us how to texture, he also taught us major skills like lighting and ambience. The hands-on approach at MAGES was a game changer for my art.
