What do you hope your students take away from your class?
I hope my students take away from my class new processes and skills that they can use in CFAC and beyond.
What is your favorite thing to teach and why?
My favorite thing to teach is how to use gesture drawings to create more realistic drawings. I find that teaching this shows the students that nothing is too difficult to draw when you break it down into smaller shapes and simpler lines.
