Teaching

 

Here it is my friends, a fun little video about my Skateboard art teaching gig in Oregon.

I made a wonderful discovery  in late 2013 when the owner of art gallery and studio “Mind Unwind” in West Seattle where I was having a solo surf art show invited me to teach a class on my Opening night. I suggested “Skateboard Art” and over those following three lessons my  students showed me that not only did I have something to share but that it was so much fun to share and to witness creativity unfold. Then in April 2014, I was invited to conduct a one week after school  program teaching “Skateboard Art” to teenagers in Hood River, Oregon and was that ever enormously rewarding.

Please see my schedule below at the following schools and foundations:
