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.

I have worked with Matt in portfolio development from when I was 12 and going into high school, to 15, as I develop my college portfolio. He has encouraged me with new ideas, understandings about art, and helped me be confident in what I want to create. Preparing for my college portfolio especially, being committed and making time to create was important in my development, as Matt was able to give helpful feedback that allowed me to finish up to 25 works. His style of teaching is accepting of all art forms, and his own creativity allows for unique portfolio pieces. Thank you for all of the great sessions!

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.
