My teaching approach includes guidance of a student through the steps of being creative in a digital environment. Helping the student to master their own goals using the ease of digital image manipulation. I also taught color theory and use for more than 4 years.
I am a film production and post production specialist who taught Photoshop at a large private college for more than five years. Also, I grew up using computers so I am very good at lessening student's fears of learning and attempting new creative activities in the digital environment.
