I have taught art K-University levels since 1979, in a Grade School and High School in Chicago, in which one student won 1st prize in a city wide drawing contest.I have taught thousands of students, some have gone on to be graphic designers, art teachers and gallery directors. Most of my students have graduated from my classes with honors and have won awards in drawing, painting and design.
