A well thought out class with an amazing history of rabbits in children's books. Loved it!
This was a fun, informative, and entertaining class. I learned a lot of tips and had a great time! I thought the class was well organized and clearly explained. I like Nina's teaching style and will be looking for more classes taught by her.
Takes me in the mists of time to when I drew Fiver, Hazel and possibly a few others.
