I have been teaching students from all ages since 2017. Art One Academy as well as George Brown College, The Cartooning and Illustration program, have contributed greatly to my own education. I combine this experience with my passion to teach and share my knowledge and find deep satisfaction from my work. My goal when teaching art is to help my students learn as many techniques as possible by working with different mediums while having fun and expressing themselves through their art work. I try to challenge my students to step out of their comfort zones, try new techniques and subjects that will expand there artistic skills. I develop a unique program for each student, considering the student’s strengths and weaknesses and what I can do to help them improve. I always take note on what the student’s personal goals and interests are, and guide them in developing the specific skills that will aid them in achieving those goals.
