The Class helped me see how the pros see their respective art. In the beginning, there are some insights which we wish were feeded to us on a plate rather than going through the long experiencial journey. All masterclasses are making our learning curve quite steep
It was very insightful, interesting and useful! Natalie is wonderful and creative! I would love to work with her in the future!
Great class, some really good advice and just general encouragement to be true to you and take risks.
So enjoyable; One of my favorite classes - No arrogance, solid advice. If a person could chose their family, she would totally be my sister.
