Derr showcased a selection of his works at Eyevolution Optique and spent Sunday afternoon interacting with eager children of grammar school age as they worked with crayons, chalk and other art materials. Derr commented, "I wasn't sure what I was getting into since I had never taught children before. However it turned out to be an exciting and fun afternoon for the children, their parents (who joined in) and me. Art is a universal language and like music has the ability to cross age and cultural differences."
An internationally exhibited artist Derr employs a wide cross section of artistic disciplines includingtraditional and digital painting, mixed media, assemblages and photography. His works have recently been displayed at the European Council of International Schools in Nice, France; as well as exhibitions in Spain,the Czech Republic, Germany and the United Kingdom.
