Level 1 student review from @ramonalamentcolorist

"This was the most amazing class I have EVER been to. These two talented and amazing artists spent so much time with us. I really felt like I learned so much. The small class size made me feel really comfortable and at ease. I would definitely take more of these classes for sure! I am so grateful. Thanks again!"
