Mixed Media Layers - Terrific!

by Sally Cendral
I loved this class and gained loads of "Seth info" from it. Everything was explained very clearly and all techniques were demonstrated in the best possible fashion. I only have praise for the course, and for the warmth and charm of Seth. Thank you very much for such an enjoyable experience.

Really enjoyed this.

I loved the chance to watch Seth Apter at work. I wish he had shown his collage technique as well, more is more after all 😉

Thank you, Seth, for sharing your mixed media art techniques. You stretched my imagination to create something different! I have recommended your class to other journal makers. There is so much to enjoy and create. Cheers, Kathleen Williams

Learned a lot watching the creative process

by Diana Hayn-Williams
Besides the techniques, it was very insightful to follow Seth through his thought process while he created. I was very inspired and can't wait to try out the various techniques. Thank you!!

Delighted in this course

by Mary Carroll
I followed the sequence of techniques through all the layers of this course. The scaffolding of skills was very helpful to me, and I loved watching Seth work and listening to his narration. While an in-person workshop is a terrific experience, THIS course is invaluable in seeing everything up close and taking time to work through each layer. The accompanying PDF files were helpful to me as I was able to carry them to my studio and refer to them as I worked on my own pieces. I highly recommend this class!

TOP NOTCH!

by Suzanne Ford
This is undoubtedly one of the best online courses I have ever taken. Besides being reasonably priced (a bargain actually!), Seth covers his different layering techniques so thoroughly. The videos are easily seen and very thorough examples of his process while giving his philosophy behind his methods. The PDFs are succinct and perfect reminders. So professionally presented; my compliments to Stencil Girl for producing this online course!

Well worth the time and the money

by Michele Unger
I always get so much from watching an artist in their process. I have taken several classes from Seth in the past and many of the techniques he demonstrates in this course are not completely new to me. What is the big take away, for me, is listening to his thought process while watching him create. Listening to an artist in the midst of creation is enlightening. How they think about creating, how they approach creating, what seems to them to be working and what they feel the need to "fix" is all helpful to me in my work. I sometimes think that 90% of my work is "fixing" what I just did! Watching and listening to Seth while he goes through the process, how he thinks about what he's creating and, maybe, most especially, how he tries not to think about what he's doing was so instructive. I got full value from Seth in this video course. Thanks for sharing your techniques and process with me, Seth.

Layered and Marked Magic

by Michael Tyler
Each and every layer Seth applied and spoke of kept me in a state of awe. His ending highlights, finishing touches and last marks gave totally unexpected life to the work UNFINISHED as the magic of Seth Apter. Watching it for the second time gave me a new awareness of his style and more appreciation for his technique. A genius instructor, leading with inspiration magic, thru ink, emboss, paint, stencils, and substrate of choice. A class for everyone!

Excellent!

by Katheryn Thames
Everything done by Stencil Girl is always a notch above the usual. This class is no different. It's broken up into easily digestible bits and is quite easily followed. Seth is an artist that I have long admired, and watching this class was SO empowering, he has such a gentle, patient manner as he teaches. He fills me with confidence that I can create art that I like. My project didn't turn out looking like the project he had because I didn't have all the same things that he had. I still felt confident that I could do what I was imagining, and I did! I am looking forward to more hours of play with my paint and stencils as I explore color layering and stencils. I will come back to these videos again and again over time as I stretch myself to learn new things.

Absolutely loved this on-line class with Seth Apter. I appreciate all the techniques Seth shared. The pace of the class was well planned. The lighting and clarity of the video was first class and professional. Seth spoke well and gave clear instructions plus very useful tips. I hope Seth and Stencil Girl produces many more classes. Thank you for the learning opportunity.
