Mr D was a nice teacher and pretty friendly but he was kind of out of sometimes. I don't entirely agree with his teaching methods as he only really promotes realism. He always said to work from a photograph and didn't really encourage or teach contemporary art. He didn't push students to be original and unique or to think outside the box. I got the impression from him that to him only realism and impressionism were the only valid styles and felt that it was very restrictive.

David Deserrano was a wonderful teacher. I felt encouraged, and inspired to create! He was very easy going, which is imperative in the creative world, yet always challenging your artwork with constructive criticism, which in hindsight was the best teaching tool he could've used. I am happy to say I am a very successful graphic designer today, and wouldn't be without his initial creative inspiration.

Mr D! "ur painting is only as good as the drawing underneath" ." no second hand art". "you get what you pay for". "the process is more important then the product". "no black try using blue" " burnt umber and yellow ochre". Oh man mr d u are hilarious, make me laugh the most ever. Easiest to talk to and always has something interesting to say. We Love You and all ur quirky ways. Oh and thanks for letting me getting my own paint! AND we know theres something a miss with our paintings.

Very cool teacher, he actually showed me I could draw/copy a B&W picture on paper. Totally got me hooked on art. Thumbs up all the way. DO NOT discuss abstract.
