How do I hold a pencil? It sounds silly doesn't it? Elementary students are shown how to hold a pencil when they are taught how to write, but why aren't we shown how to hold a pencil when we draw? The assumption is that we hold a pencil to draw the

A local artist was interviewed and asked to describe exactly how he develops his ideas for paintings. “Believe it or not, your imagination doesn’t need to be controlled. In my experience, it actually works better when it’s not forced and I just

"I can't draw!" Unfortunately there are many students, and adults, who are absolutely convinced that they can't draw or be creative. As a result they have disqualified themselves from any form of self-expression. The Creative Myth is a search to

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

As a high school art teacher, art department chair, and professional artist I have had the opportunity to build not only engaging art programs, but also encourage and inspire students to use the arts within their chosen career. It is my firm conviction that every individual is creative to some degree and by nurturing creativity; students will become increasingly marketable as adults. I am passionate about the arts and living the creative life, as such I have taught fine art to every age group from kindergarten, elementary, junior high, high school and yes even adults. I have had a very unique opportunity to observe and participate in age appropriate pedagogy, which has helped me to clearly understand how to teach, train, and encourage each age group to be creatively successful. As a professional artist and art gallery owner, I am very aware of competition and marketability. Not only do I teach students the tools and techniques of art, but I also teach students how to think creatively with the hope that they will take creative thinking with them into the market place no matter what career they choose. Seeing the need for additional art instruction in the community, I created an afterschool art program, which I taught in my gallery and studio. Within 9 months my classes grew to 28 students with a waiting list. I encouraged many of my students to enter their work in our local county fair every year and mentored an award winning 7 year old that sold his first piece of art for $400.00. As a high school art teacher and department chair, I have had the unique experience of building a Visual and Performing Arts program from the ground up. Within 5 years I have been able to write curriculum and build classical art programs for Art 1 & 2: Drawing and Composition, Art 3 & 4: Color and Design, AP (Advanced Placement) Studio Art, and Digital Photography.

MY TEACHING STYLE

My teaching style is similar to the mentors of the renaissance, I firmly believe the process of creating art is something that is both caught and taught. This means I teach through demonstration, brief lecture, and one-on-one instruction. In my own experience as an artist I have found that when I watch an instructor demonstrate a tool or technique is helps me to mimic the action required. Once I understand the “how” I can then embellish and creatively express, as I desire. This is the same experience I pass on to my students. In addition, I am absolutely convinced that everyone has the innate ability to express him or herself (*see Living the Creative Life and The Creative Myth) and will work with individuals to help them find the way they creatively communicate.
