“Matt Long is a gift of a teacher. He is incredibly knowledgable and encourages us to try new things and be as creative as possible. He works with each artist personally and is good at working with us at all different levels of experience. He challenged every weakness I ever had. The skills you learn in this class are worth SO MUCH MORE than the cost of the class in the sense of money or time.”
