What Students Have Said

Over the years I’ve signed up for many art classes, but none that I enjoyed more than the one I took with Sue Ann Dickey. Beyond being well-structured and fun, she taught so many useful techniques I had never seen before. She also showed us many of her paintings broken down into the steps she took as she worked on them which I found most helpful in understanding how I could go about my own paintings. After her well-planned presentation, as she gave the students time to paint, I loved the personal attention and positive remarks she gave each of us. What an enjoyable teacher she is!

I have taken a number watercolor, acrylic and oil painting classes, including classes at Scottsdale Artists School and the Shemer Art Center. The classes I have taken from Sue Ann Dickey rank at the top of my experiences. She is a skilled artist and instructor. She is adept in explaining concepts and processes while providing inspiration and encouragement in a nurturing environment. I highly recommend her and will be first in line to sign up for future classes!

Sue Ann is an accomplished artist and she knew how to teach. I was a teacher for 20 years, so I knew what she faced with that large class. She had a calm, cheerful demeanor. She communicated clearly and interacted with each person at their level. No one was ignored, and she kept it moving. I ranked her ‘Excellent’ in every category.

Sue takes the pain out of painting. This is my third class with her. She’s an amazing instructor and a genuinely nice person.

In my opinion, she’s the best painting instructor in the Valley.
