Sample Discord Critiques

“The Discord interaction with Prof Lieu and Jordan was outstanding. Their daily feedback on my work posted between voice sessions was very helpful. The Art Prof Premium Tracks are the BEST online classes I’ve seen …bar none!

Watch a voice session

The voice sessions are my favorite part of the premium tracks. They’re a great sounding board for things you’re struggling with in an assignment.

I’ve brought up plenty of issues I have with my own works in progress, and the staff will give critique that very often drastically improves the final product.”
