Tim was one of the best teachers I have ever had. He was also a fantastic person full of life. He didn't always let you do what you wanted but he sure did make you learn what you needed. I'm am so blessed to have him guide me through the years.

So sad Tim retired. He was an amazing teacher who knew everything there was to know about the world of visual art and teaching. Funny and great!! Even though he's not a permanent teacher at the school anymore you will still see him around because he is doing little workshops and stuff for the visual art classes. Look forward to seeing him around.

I was a student of Tim's WAY back in 1994-1999. He has been once of the best influences in my life. He often made me cry, but I can honestly say, his opinions of my work, good and bad, were meant to draw (no pun intended) the best out of me. Tim was not popular because he was easy, but because he is honest, charismatic, strong, and believes in producing better artists out of his students. Me experience is that Tim DesClouds WILL force you out of your comfort zone, and it's all to improve YOU...

Tim is an amazing teacher! He tends to favour students over others, and bring every conversation back to dating. Basically assume he will only see the psychotic things you do, give you a strange look, and walk away.

Takes pleasure in picking apart the more introverted students in front of the entire class. He does this while keeping the more popular students on his side, since they are the voices most likely to be heard. He picks on introverts since they tend to be the more intelligent ones, enabling them to clearly see how he abuses his position of authority to feed his own ego.
