One of the best courses I've ever taken!
He is a great instructor—I learned a lot from him and I can tell that he is passionate about art and teaching.
I like how Armand tailored his content to each student specifically to push them as designers. It wasn't a cookie cutter method; he valued each artist based on their interest, guiding them through each week as time progressed. He's once-in-a-lifetime artist that truly cares about the artist and their craft.
It was a pleasure to learn from Armand. He is humble, attentive and very passionate about his work which was very clear in every lecture. He is truly inspirational.
Great professional, really liked working with him!
Great instructor, and I would without a doubt recommend him to other students and even to teach another class.
I thought he had taught us well, giving the extra time of the Q&A to help the class how to approach our work, and help us improve.
This is my second time taking a class with Armand. I really enjoy his teaching style and love the fact that he always has feedback for our work. His teaching style allows us to become more of a thinking artist which I find a huge plus. On top of the fact that he always shows interest.
