Is an artist and teacher of popular art classes in San Diego, California - lately, at Foothills Adult Center in El Cajon, the La Mesa Adult Enrichment Center, and MiraCosta College’s Community Services programs. He is frequently called upon to demonstrate methods and materials, conduct workshops and serve as juror for art exhibitions throughout San Diego County. Since 1987, he has dedicated his teaching time to helping others find pleasure, confidence and skill in all art mediums. He is very proud of the numerous success stories among students in our programs ~ several of whom now regularly win awards in art shows they enter. He was nominated Outstanding Instructor by students and staff, which resulted in my receiving the first annual Oasis Award in 2011 for exceptional achievement in teaching with Grossmont Adult Schools. Since then, five of his students have received the Outstanding Student award. As a dedicated, life-long learner, he appreciates that teaching, demonstrating techniques and preparing lessons has accelerated his own art skills and enhanced his visual perception and creativity, as well.
