Strong recommendation for Deron. I had a 2 hr lesson where I had specific things I wanted to do and learn, and he delivered. Very flexible in the lesson, and great instruction!
Sierra W.
Deron is wonderful with my 7 year old granddaughter. Her parents are in the process of divorcing and she is having a hard time with it emotionally. Deron is patient and kind and allows her to direct the lesson with his guidance. She loves drawing and she really looks forward to her her lesson time with Deron.
Zaki
Deron is an absolute joy to work with. My dude ran off immediately after the lesson to draw some more. Now that's a positive review. :)

I have 10 years of experience as a professional illustrator, working with various clients. I can adjust my lessons to focus on what you want to learn, in watercolor, mixed media, or digital art. Because of my experience, I'm able to teach you about the business side of art, including how to run your own business and network to find clients. As a bi and trans man, I am very open-minded and welcoming to students from all backgrounds.

Please note that at this time, I am only equipped to teach watercolor, mixed media, and digital art.

Valentine truly took the time to ensure I learned at my own pace to be the best that I could be. I learned more from Valentine than I did from the art teachers I had in school and it really expanded my capabilities.m
Truly exceeded my expectations.
Susannah
Valentine is an excellent artist with a wide breadth of skills and a patient teaching style! Always a joy to work with!!
Alec
I've worked with Valentine on a couple different projects throughout the years and every time has been an absolute dream. He's dedicated, talented, and is always well researched in the concepts that he brings to the table.

Things I had not known or considered before are presented in ways that are easy to understand and apply, making sure that progress is never a frustration of misunderstanding, but a steady slope of execution.

If you're looking for an instructor with a unique viewpoint and patient, kind disposition, I couldn't recommend Valentine higher.

Want to learn to paint or draw your favorite scene or photo you took on your last vacation? Interested in learning how to creatively express your own artistic development through your favorite medium? I have been a practicing artist for 20+ years and I love seeing others progress with mediums they are personally interested in. Painting, drawing, photography and ceramic sculpture have been large focuses of my artistic career; coupling that with my love to educate others I'd enjoy the opportunity to talk to see if I could invest my time teaching you some of the skills and techniques I have learned from all around the world.

About Sheldon

I am an experienced artist that has traveled the world, learned from many teachers, observed, utilized tested techniques and have a mentality that I can always be learning. I studied art a little more than average in high school, but graduated with honors in college with several classes of studio l

What a pleasure it was having Sheldon come in and teach our youth! We planned a night of creativity for our youth at our church and Sheldon kindly volunteered and provided materials for our teens to have an awesome experience. He gave expert advise and technique but also embraced everyone creative side. Hope to have another night with Sheldon as our teacher. Super fun night!!

Although I've dabbled in watercolors previously, Megan taught me a few formal techniques which I used to create a small finished piece and which I will be able to use going forward. I got a lot out of our two hours together!"
