About Chris

I am a San Francisco based studio artist that exhibits regularly around the country.

My past teaching experience has been at Indiana University, New Mexico State University, Drury University, Metro State Denver and the University of Arizona. I taught all forms of printmaking, drawing, installation, and introduction to art history.

In my own studio practice I work with audio and video, painting, sewing, sculpture, printmaking and collage that often come together in large scale installations.

I have 10 years experience teaching all types of students at the university level and have taught workshops to school children in various places.

I have a large skill set to offer in the arts and would love to pass it along.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Drawing

I have taught numerous courses in drawing the figure and still life's at the university level. In addition, I have taught non-traditional experimental drawing as well. My own artistic practice involves drawing at times.

Graphic Design

I have a degree in Graphic Design from undergraduate and have taught numerous classes on it at university level including independent study students. I have also taught many courses in color theory and 2 dimensional design.

Painting

While never having formally taught painting I incorporate it into my own artistic studio practice and have exhibitions where my paintings have been exhibited on multiple occasions. I am a trained printmaker and there is quite a few parallels with painting.

Video Production

I have taught a class called 4 dimensional art where I introduced beginning art students to creating and editing videos they shot using their own cameras with the video editing software that is available in Photoshop CS6. In my own work I have used Final Cut Express and After Effects.
