"Charla's art is what brought me to the school and after seeing how much she puts into it gave me a whole new appreciation! So much I did not know about color theory is now making sense to me. I could paint before BCB but feel like I have been given the keys to originality! I am ready to paint paint paint! I will wear out some brushes until I get how to use it all! The mentors are rockin' it! So Good!"
- Charlotte Champlin
"The course has been a revelation to me. It has given me a new lease of life in my artwork. The course was well supported but there was a point in the learning when I was ready to give up. I persevered though and finished my painting which I still love. All the material was good and it was well worth the cost to me. I also want to mention the mentors who are my heroes. Always helpful and giving positive feedback."
