Here at BOYCP I teach Drawing and Painting and DP Visual Arts. I have been a teacher for 10 years and the last 7 have been right here in Back of the Yards. While working in our beautiful school, I have had the privilege of working along side some of the finest teachers in the City of Chicago, and of course you - the students.
In my classes, I try to find a strong balance between technical skill and the creative process. I believe that as artists, we must have both the confidence in our abilities as makers before you can execute fully realized ideas. Far too often students ignore the arts for fear of failure. In my classes, I will try to help you eliminate that fear.
With practice, discipline, an open mind and heart, anyone can create.
