I want to teach at an art school. The problem is that the few that I’ve inquired to teach at either have not gotten back to me or gave me a very friendly rejection. Other than guest lectures, I haven’t gotten any schools asking me to teach either. I didn’t want to let their rejection keep me from doing the thing I wanted to do so I put forth an idea that I had to the internet. My goal was to teach up to 8 artist about editorial illustration or story telling for zines/books over the course of 10 weeks via Skype. The response was pretty positive and five wonderful people asked me to be in one of my classes.
The images above are works created for my classes and each image caption includes the illustrators name if you wanted to look them up later. The diversity of the students ranged from the self taught to the recent graduate who wanted a little more than what they hadn’t got from their studies to illustrators who have been out for a couple years and wanted to take their work to the next level. I have learned a lot from the process of teaching and they have learned a lot from me. I’m so proud of every one of them.
I am looking to take on 8 more students to begin classes on February 2nd, 2014 for those interested.Click here to read more about the classes and sign up by January 24th!
