I loved Taka Maruno's class. An accomplished artist himself, he is also the ideal teacher -- patient, inclusive and easygoing, but clear in his instructions and gentle but firm in his advice when asked for feedback or input on aesthetic decisions. With students ranging from accomplished professional artists to rank beginners like myself, I appreciated the relaxed and individual attention he gave us to work on individual projects at our own pace, while also gathering us for demonstrations of techniques. Taka introduced us to a range of techniques from drypoint to chine-collé and all in the context of creating unique monotype prints of all sizes. I did not see the 3 hours go by -- it was pure flow! Deep bow to Taka Maruno!
