Dean is a phenomenal art teacher. He has been working with our 13 year old daughter for 6 months now and I have seen tremendous growth in all aspects of her art. I am not sure how he does it but I am amazed by how much she has learned. She comes out with beautiful art every class. He is also very professional, keeps me informed on how she is progressing and proactive about keeping things on track from schedule perspective. He is just an amazing artist and teacher! Here are couple examples of their latest lessons

We think Dean is a wonderful teacher. It is really good to have someone outside his family support and believe in Alex. Alex, (who is 13 and has ADHD) is definitely a quirky personality when it comes to doing difficult work. Yet he listens to Dean, feels Dean pushes him to try new things, and feels challenged enough by him that he grows in his artistic talent. We are very grateful for your expertise and ability to pass your skills to your students.

Last week marked the year mark that I have been working with Dean. He is such a gifted talented artist and teacher. I came to him with a professional goal and he never lost sight of why I am there. He chooses assignments that will help me reach my goal. He reminds me of an art doctor it’s genius how he can immediately look at your work and diagnose what the problem is and where you may have went wrong and when you make the correction you see the image start to come alive. He is very professional, patient and friendly. He gives valuable feedback and critique that keeps you wanting to do better. I would highly recommend him!

Mr. Dean Liao is great. I have never done drawing before. Through the first lesson, I was able to draw a 3D object reasonably well. He is good at explaining the concepts and techniques to an outsider like me. And he is very patient. I highly recommend him.

Dean was so helpful in my introduction to drawing! I started at stick figure level and was able to progress quite quickly. He has a progressive lesson plan that reinforces and builds on various techniques. Dean provides great feedback to help improve your skills, and he's also a nice guy to chat with! I wholeheartedly recommend.
