As an educator I’ve been teaching classes in Concept Design for over 4 years at the LA Academy of Figurative Art in Van Nuys, CA as well as the online art school CGMA (CG Master Academy). Drawing from both my education at the Art Center College of Design as well as my professional experience as a Concept Artist/Art Director, I like to teach a methodical approach that’s true to the art form but also to the current practices of the industry.
LA Academy of Figurative Art – Composition, Design Fundamentals, Visual Development
