Cathie Sluski completed this course, spending 5 hours a week on it and found the course difficulty to be medium.
This class was a dream for me. Valerie is an excellent teacher , teaching by repetition and always being there to answer questions. i really learned how to model and animate, which is something i tried learning on youtube for years but couldnt get it. I recommend this class to anyone who enjoys creating and learning. Cathie Sluski
