WHAT perrin method students ARE SAYING:
"I found your first online class in December 2015. I have signed up for every subsequent class and will do so for your next one. You and the other students have been my own wonderful armchair art workshop for over a half a year! I will truly miss the Q and A's on Mondays! And you all feel like supportive friends. And I hope you continue to offer classes on any subject you can dream up! The Periscope broadcasts are incredibly helpful. Never in a workshop does the artist finish the demo. Therefore, rarely does a student profit by seeing a master refine the painting in the final steps. AND we get to spend time in your and Camille's amazing gardens! You seem to enjoy painting so much, and I have felt privileged to join you, Aimee, Camille, the dogs and the chirping birds during the demos.
I know this e-mail is rather long, but your teaching has been a true revelation to me. I now feel "in control" of my skills and knowledge! It feels like freedom! Thank you from my heart!" – V.E.
"I have studied with many nationally known painters. but this class and its' cutting edge presentation has truly been inspirational. Rewiewing the videos numerous times has finally cemented a process that is entirely new to me! Dennis' commentary also has led me to a whole new way of thinking in the abstract so that I am painting the essence of a subject, not a realistic rendition. I am excited beyond words and am looking forward to the next segment." - C.D.
"The support and insights gained from this experience working with Dennis Perrin are priceless. Gentle encouragement, generous praise and insightful humor all exist in the world of painting with Perrin. Never having owned a French easel, I had little idea how to open one, let alone set up a palette with color or use the palette knife. Dennis provides a homing signal to your truest painting self, guides you with the use of the tools, then sets you free to discover your own painting nature. Far better than anticipated (I thought I would feel ashamed of my clumsy strokes) and supportive beyond my wildest dreams....a class with Dennis Perrin is one of the finest experiences of my life. Thank you for journeying with me into joy, Dennis." — S.S.
"Your instruction on mindset and vision are as valuable as the tangible techniques you shared with such gusto! Well done and I’m sure I’ll be in another class with you! Thank you!" - S.B.
