What students are saying:

In regards to Elements of Design II:

“I felt very challenged by the material. The material was just right!”

“I felt the course helped in developing a broad view as to how model are made before designing the actual building space. It was challenging.”

“A great course for learning the basic principles of design. The course is mainly based on projects and discussions so learning is done individually and is based on the student’s ability to grasp the concepts and think beyond what’s taught in class.”

In regards to Color Theory and Application:

“I have learned so much from his class. I took a color class before while I was an university student, but the content was totally different. now I have a knowledge how to coordinate the interior.”

“Great course..above my expectations..first class I take here at the UCLA Extension and I really liked it.”

General remarks about the instructor:

“The instructor was fantastic! I was thoroughly satisfied by his communication skill and participation.”

“Knowledgeable instructor, excellent teaching method and communication. Thought provoking topics of discussion.”
