Student Review


"I enjoyed the 8-week course immensely and learned so much in that short period.

Prof. Bustos is the ideal teacher: He is incredibly enthusiastic about his subject, very willing to share all his knowledge, and wonderfully constructive in his critique of a pupil's homework, besides being an extremely accomplished artist in his own right.

In addition, he has an extremely positive outlook on life and even taught the class despite a recent neck operation. To have all these qualities in one teacher is very rare indeed. It was an absolute treat to be part of this course and I will recommend it highly to my friends." 


"This course was very good, Rey is an amazing teacher. I learned so much from him.

It was a privilege to learn from Rey. He is extremely passionate and made it fun to learn anatomy."
