I have gotten so much from every lesson I’ve taken in Bold School but this class was outstanding for me on many levels.

There were so many techniques that I have never tried nor considered. I absolutely love the palette. Thank you, Corey! I can’t wait to give this a try."

What a beautiful and insightful class!

I’ve watched it through and am excited to paint with so much more understanding of the eyes.

I love to watch you paint Corey and to soak up your wisdom. You’re an inspiration! Thank you for this class."

This class is a MUST!

I've used the lessons learned here over and over. So appreciated the cheat sheet and examples of where things go wrong. Also loved the artistic license with having her cry...that alone has given me so many ideas for what to do on my own. Great class, thank you!"
