We have MANY, MANY more reviews to be added since the creation of this page...

This workshop is open to attendees from all parts of the world. It takes place in a forum environment so you do not need to be logged on at any specific times of day as there is no live streaming video or chats. For most of our workshops instructors release PDF lessons or video 1-3 times per week for the duration of the workshop. Sarah will typically log in once per day or more to reply to any questions or provide critique based on the lessons released. Please note that this workshop has a one week break for the United States Thanksgiving Holiday and so attendees can practice during that time.
