Traditional Fine Arts and Digital Artist offering Drawing, Photoshop and Illustrator instructions in Raleigh with 15+ years experience

Methodology

Through the use of visual demonstrations, current art and design pieces, ads/videos and movies I allow students to discover how a powerful presentation of an image or product can make a memorable visual piece. My classes are geared towards High School graduates applying for college and college students preparing their professional portfolio.

Background

A Bachelors degree in Fine Arts and a Masters in Computer Animation allows me to comfortably navigate between these two unique artistic platforms. I've been teaching High School and College level Visual Arts courses for over 12 years. My classes are focused on preparing portfolio worthy pieces.

Jenny's resume

Jenny Izquierdo

PROFILE

More than fifteen years of teaching experience both classroom as well as online
environment. Proficient in curriculum development in both settings. Taught Graduate and Undergraduate level.

Teaching philosophy

I am a strong believer that computer software is a tool to expand on an idea and not the sole means of creating a project. I implement that concept in my classes in order for
students to understand the importance of the very basic creative materials, a blank piece of paper and a pencil. An image goes beyond cultural and language barriers when effectively put together. This is achieved by understanding the core design principles/fundamentals. Through the use of current art and design pieces, ads/videos and movies I allow students to discover how a powerful presentation of an image or product can make a memorable visual piece.
