Columbus College of Art & Design




Last semester I taught my first class. I was anxious and awkward and one can always improve. However, I hope the students were able to take something beneficial from the class to help them along their way to a career in art. Overall, it was a great learning experience(at least for me;) If I had to break it down I would say work really hard at your art and promote yourself. There's a saying I heard when I was in school that went something like "We all have a thousand shitty drawings inside each one of us. The sooner we get those shitty drawings out of the way the sooner we can make drawings that are the shit" I may have switched it up a bit but hopefully you get the point.

Here are some finals from a few of my students

thanks for posting!
The three pieces you just finished look very beautiful together. I think I like the boy with the seashells best because of the unusual palette.

That's so true about the 1000 shitty drawings haahah. man...i want to get rid of them as soon as possible.

I like the first one because of the idea and the secure lines.
Last one is also really detailled and stuff.
Second one, nice perspective.
