Mr. Osmar was well organized, and he is an amazing artist. I came into the class brand new at working in ink. I won’t say I’m a polished artist now but I learned some things that I know will help me improve as I practice them. I will be signing up for his other classes in winter quarter. – Jean G., Kent
