Jane is so fun and amazing. Her creativity takes you places you did not know yo had inside you. She is so extremely talented, it just flows from within her. You will love doing this lesson with her, she gives you the confidence to go for it!! Review by marla (Posted on 9/16/2015)
Textured Backgrounds-needed more
The info given is useful, however a video showing how to do project would have been more helpful. The slide show gives some info, however I could not watch and do. I did not appreciate one page promoting an artists medium - thought this was unprofessional and I should not be paying for this. I was not enthused to go try this.

review of Textured Backgrounds art lesson
after taking numerous--admittedly more expensive and involved--lessons from CPS artists, I am completely and utterly disappointed in this one. Jane LaFazio is a talented teacher and artist but this lesson is less informative than if my cat taught it. Starts out telling what medium to use for collage then goes directly into tracing something from who knows where to go over the collage. Left out most of the steps. Would rather pay more for REAL lesson with ALL the important steps. Won't waste time on other "lessons." Review by Janean (Posted on 7/10/2013)
