After attending I fell in love with art and i am going to be attending crawford college of art and design this september. So thank you Declan for helping me discover my love of art”

"I recently attended Declan's class on oil pastel portraits. I really enjoyed every single class and Declan gave excellent instruction on how to develop our work. I will definitely be back for another class and would highly recommend him as a teacher."

"Declan is a personable and patient teacher which makes his classes very relaxed and fun. He is generous with his talent and I came away with a range of newly acquired art skills, adaptable to any medium. An absolute treat! I highly recommend his classes for beginners and more experienced artists alike."
