Previous 2D Animator and High School Teacher will teach fundamentals of cartooning!

Methodology

I approach topics in a more 'hands-on' style reminiscent of Montessori style, with a lot of visual aids, and demonstration, both online and in a formal setting of smaller groups, that enable more interaction and user participation, in order for each student to develop their own style and understanding of the subject! I am a Creator rather than a Strategist and believe creativity exists in everyone! My lifelong journey includes completing an online Art Therapy course, and now I have completed it, I plan to pursue any other ‘one-off’ educational projects online, while reviewing my prior workshops on arts programs and upgrading and developing new online educational aids to incorporate updated use of art as therapy, in all aspects of life, including the workplace or wherever else an individual may need it!

Background

I am a former High School Art Teacher & Adult Educator [mostly working in Adult Evening Colleges] who has also worked for several years in the 2D Animation industry. I feel these combined skills and experience will benefit a 'new generation' learning old traditional animation methods, as well as sampling basics of graphics illustration, as applied to the childrens book and multimedia industries & platforms.
