    I never cease to learn something from Anna’s Classes and this Design Principles and Design with Brushes Bundle Classes were no exception. Anna’s clear and concise voice and right pace delivery make it easy to follow as well as having little light bulbs going off now and then even though I have been using her products for about 4 years. You won’t be disappointed if you always felt you could never quite get the hang of Brushes. Trish

    • Anna Aspnes

      Trish I’m thrilled you loved the class. I’m always happy to teach anyone a trick or 2 but when I can elevate the experience for an advanced user – It’s even more special. Thank you for taking the time and supporting what I do around here.

    I’ve been taking Anna’s classes for the past couple of years and each class seems better than the last. I’m really enjoying learning to use brushes more than I do now and each new skill builds on the last. The more technical design principles are also starting to make sense, especially as I watched the de-construct lesson.

    I’m looking forward to the next installation of this course as it becomes available to really kick my artistry up a gear.

    • Anna Aspnes

      So happy to hear this Michelle. Practical approach to more technical concepts is what will move your artistry forward. Excited to share the next part 🙂 Appreciate your support, of course, this review 🙂

    I’ve been buying and using Anna’s products and tutorials for a few months, since her digital art continues to amaze me. The Design Principles and Brushes Bundle classes are wonderful. I’m still exploring the myriad possibilities of the brushes. As for the videos, I’ve taken many classes that cover design principles, and this class is the most helpful. The information is organized in a memorable — even unforgettable, clear and useful way. Five-star recommendation for sure.

    • Anna Aspnes

      Hi Leslie, thrilled this resonated with you enough to provide such a glowing review. I appreciate your time and thoughtfulness. Thank you! Enjoy those brushes 🙂

    This class has given me a whole new perspective on how to approach my artsy layouts. I’ve always pretty much ignored the brushes in the art play palettes but now want to explore each and every one. Can’t wait to start applying the new ideas I picked up in this class.

    • Anna Aspnes

      A whole new world is opening up for you Jeanne.

    I have been purchasing Anna’s products for a couple years but certainly not using them to their fullest. I have used the templates and the artplay palettes mostly. I have not done hardly anything with brushes and decided this year was the year to learn more especially with all the covid-19 shelter-in-home extra time i have. I started taking classes this year and happy i am doing so. Using brushes is still an uncertain area for me but its time to stretch those brain cells of mine. Thanks Anna!

    • Anna Aspnes

      Brushes are one of those elements it’s easy to get by without, but using them certainly elevates your artistry in ways other elements cannot touch. Thank you for taking the time 🙂
