Hear it from The Perrin Method™ students:

  • Dennis Perrin Fine Art

    “I wanted to thank you, Dennis for your valuable instruction and guidance with the course I took. After a long dry spell before taking this class, I am painting once again and look forward to not just practicing the Perrin Method, but also finding the quiet place necessary in my mind in order to truly enjoy it. There have been a few events in my life in the past two years or so which have caused me to stumble a bit, but I think I'm back on my feet with your help. Your influence is far-reaching, Master Perrin, and you are greatly admired and appreciated.”

  • Dennis Perrin Fine Art

    “I've decided to call it done. Overall, I'm happy with it. I feel I'm getting more consistent which is what I hoped for. I felt, before, that I'd throw paint at a surface and hope something I liked popped up. I now see a way forward to refine my vision and be able to execute it. I'm so happy painting! And I feel like there's so much more to do and learn!”

    “Have really enjoyed the past few weeks painting and sharing with such a talented group and watching the demos from a true master instructor. A lot of information for me to process in the transition from pastels to oils but it's fun going down that road. Sometimes the road gets a little bumpy but that journey is fun!!”
