Heather provides excellent instruction that is easy to incorporate into your artwork both in class and beyond! The class setting is bright and upbeat with great music playing in the background. Figure Drawing at CityArts brings an element of progressiveness to Panama City that seems to have been, up until now, only found in larger cities. But it's here now!

Heather is a great artist AND a great instructor!  I learned techniques in each of Heathers' workshops that helped me see immediate and dramatic improvements in my figure drawing efforts.  I think the biggest payoff for me was discovering that I approached figure drawing with an entirely different vision.  Heathers' instruction definitely helped me become a better artist.

Diversified, yet basic techniques to free the mind and soul. Relaxing and mind stimulating. Loved it. Highly recommend to anyone.

The stages of learning watercolor were well laid out.  It was fun to watch how Heather thinks about creating her art.  She is very pleasant and an encouraging voice.  I would absolutely take any art class from Heather in the future.
