MEET THE INSTRUCTOR

3WN: How did you get started in this industry?
David: I began drawing at a very young age, it was something I was innately interested in. As a kid I loved copying cartoons from the daily comic strips. In class I would daydream and draw to escape the tedious lessons and unhappier aspects of childhood, but mainly for the love of drawing.
During high school I discovered a natural ability to draw caricatures, much to the discontent of my subjects, to put it mildly. By the time I entered college and art school I began painting and looking at artists in museums. I studied art and illustration and soon found my work published in magazines, while receiving awards and recognition for my fine art paintings. In a word, art has been my constant companion.
3WN: What is your teaching philosophy?
David: As an art student I had many wonderful teachers who shared their knowledge and these are things I would like to pass on to my students. Beginning with an introduction to basic techniques and materials used for creating a drawing or painting. I also like to exchange ideas and experiences with my students and listen to what they expect to learn and achieve.
I have lots of plants, which I take good care of, watching as they blossom and grow. My approach to teaching is similar, nurture my students, encourage them and watch them grow.
