What Students Say

My husband and I took your mosaic portraiture workshop a couple of years ago at the Oakland Institute of Mosaic Arts.  The class was wonderful – you presented the material in a way that helped me become more adventuresome with materials, colors, and layout.  You are a good teacher – you present new ways to look at mosaic subtly, but very clearly.  You were friendly and made the class fun.  The weekend class was a wonderful birthday present from my husband to me!

Delaine’s  portrait classes are so much fun! I have taken her class four times! It’s Magic, the way the tiles come to life! Plus, Delaine is a very patient teacher!

Thanks!  You’re a wonderful teacher, I really enjoyed the class.  I gave it to him this week and he loved it, so I’m happy!

This was the most fun class I ever took and I learned so much from you.

I was a student in your May class.  I did the portrait of Winston. I just wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed your class, your guidance, compassion and artistic talent.  I really stretched out of my comfort zone and it felt great.

Moreover, my son and his wife were so very touched by Winston’s portrait.  I gave it to him at his birthday celebration, and I will say there was not a dry eye in the group.

It is my hope that you realize the depth of your spirit to teach others as you have touched many a heart.  You have been given a great gift, and for that I am thankful.

Thank you very much for the invitation to the grouting party, Delaine. I have to confess that I bravely grouted my mother’s “Teddy” portrait all on my own, wrapped it up, and put it under the Christmas tree.

My mother is delighted with the result (you know how nice mothers are about their children’s first attempts at artwork!), and now my only problem is that she would like a matching portrait of her “Einstein” the other Shih-Tzu who also passed away last year.

Any chance you’ll be doing the pet portrait mosaic class again soon? Many thanks for ALL your help in making my mother’s Christmas so happy. You are an excellent teacher, and I would love to take a class from you again.
