Wonderful class for beginners providing an excellent overview over tools, materials and techniques. I'm not a beginner anymore, but I really enjoyed brushing up my basic knowledge and practicing along with the class :) that is the type of lesson I need to make a good decision on what materials to buy. She broke it down further and talked about pigments and fillers and the difference between scholastic versus artist level paints. Paints and the type of brands to look for and how a paint was made.

I wish there were some more guiding to what you should do as the student taking this class. A lot of beginner classes looked to breeze over an intro to supples and technique and then immediately on to actually painting things.
