Artist / Teacher with a lifetime of experience teaching art and cartooning.

Methodology

I teach art to students at all levels: from beginner to advanced. We learn by doing and we use traditional techniques and learn the fundamentals of color and perspective and progress from rough sketches to highly polished works of art.

Background

I have been teaching at the elementary, high school and college level for over 30 years. My students have gone on to become architects, game designers, toy designers, web designers, painters, museum personnel and many other art and design-related careers.
