Pros : The techniques Nadine taught were all very good, and I learned a lot.
Cons : Nadine could improve the way she teaches. The way she presented her information was at times very confusing. She would give us many different colors of powdered glass , show us quickly where it should go and then expect us to remember it . One student finally asked her to write it on the white board and that helped a lot. The other area that could be improved was her organization… when making the rocks , all of us were trying to get the powder and water from one small end of the table. It was very crowded and took a very long time for everyone to complete the rocks… then she wanted us to hurry up .
Other Thoughts : I really enjoyed the class overall. I feel Nadine could be better organized in here teaching and use the white board or have more written in her handout.

Pros : Created a beautiful glass creek-scape to take home. Nadine is very helpful, knowledgeable and patient. Enjoyed the class and learned some new techniques. Amazing how frits can paint a picture with depth. A wonderful experience.
Cons : I wouldn't be able to do this without Nadine's expertise again. Drawing depth, light, shading/shadows and how-to apply colors/thickness to the background and foreground to capture the eyes.
Other Thoughts : Would have liked to have seen one color of frit and the pattern applied at a time, instead of the 3-4 colors at once. When I got back to my seat to do mine, I forgot where to start that color of frit and where to apply., on the left side, middle or right. Just a suggestion.
