Reviews by Students:

Joseph is an articulate teacher and was able to guide and encourage everyone in the class-no matter at what starting level. In this class those levels were quite diverse - from rank beginner to practicing professional artists. It was exciting to see the improvement in everyone's work. Joseph's enthusiasm for the technical and aesthetics of drawing was contagious. We left the class each week with renewed dedication to improve at our craft. - Marian H.

May I say with sincerity and enthusiasm that Joseph Melancon is my teacher in watercolor. He loves teaching and sharing. In fact, he loves life and it's a joy to be associated with him. - Ann H.

He is such an enthusiastic teacher that he makes us feel a new excitement about our own work. - Emily S.

He is an excellent artist and a gifted teacher. - Joan S.

I was asked to report on our ISEA workshop 2006 (for the ISEA newsletter) by our outstanding president, Mary Ann Beckwith. Since I am still on "cloud nine" after such an invigorating experience, I am very happy to do so.

It was such a pleasure to meet Joseph Melancon, our instructor for the three--day ISEA sponsored workshop, June 28 through 30 at the Arts and Culture Center in the Peter White Library in Marquette, Northern Michigan.

Our teacher, Joseph Melancon, is truly a treasure in the art world. Sixteen very experienced artists filled our room; he had our undivided attention, absorbing his innovating ideas and not missing one stroke of his awe-inspiring demonstrations. He spoke to our souls and opened the doors to our intuition.

Each day was a whole new experience of ideas, new techniques and discoveries. Joseph is a first-rate teacher, artist and juror. He not only created some masterpieces, but he also cared deeply that we understood his new process of painting and ideas by giving and sharing his time and knowledge with each eager student. Joseph taught from his heart. We will always remember his wonderful saying, "You always have what you need!" Thank you Joseph-you were what we needed. - Judi Coffey

You (Joseph) say things that I hear no one else saying. It is good for my soul... - June I.
