This class is really useful.
I recently found this creator, and i feel that her videos are incredibly helpful for new or intermediate artists wanting to try their hand at a new skill. I can personally say that her videos have helped me and I feel that their short watch time helps you get a grasp of the concepts and invites you to re-watch.
Another excellent and fun class by Yasmina! It's no wonder she's such a popular teacher. :)
