I like how Armand tailored each student specifically to push them as designers. It wasn't a cookie cutter method he valued each artist based on their interest and guiding them through each week as time progressed. He's once in a life time artist that truly cares about the artist and their craft.

I thought he had taught us well, giving the extra time of the Q&A to help the class how to approach our work, and help us improve.
Mark Anthony / Winter 2017
This is my second time taking a class with Armand. I really enjoy his teaching style and love the fact that he always has feedback for our work. His teaching style allows us to become more of a thinking artist which I find a huge plus. On top of the fact that he always shows interest.
