  • Great teacher. I took Art History 1 with him some years ago, a class I will definitely never forget. He transmits his passion for art to the students, which makes his classes very enjoyable.

  • Mr. Van Stone, your classes were my favorite! I’m so happy you had a part in the design of those beautiful buildings! They are breathtaking.
