About Arthur

I am Arthur B., The Above Average Artist and I can teach you stuff. Art stuff to be specific. I hold a Vocational Certificate from Marchman VoTech. in New Port Richey, FL., an Associate's degree in "Visual Communications" from the International Academy of Design & Technology (IADT) in Orlando, FL and a BFA Majoring in Sculpture with a Minor in Sequential Art from the Savanna College of Art & Design (SCAD) in Atlanta, GA. During and in between all that education I worked in large format printing, Illustration and educational fields using what I learned in practical applications.

I have a decade plus experience with Adobe programs, so if you want to learn or get better using Adobe Illustrator or Photoshop. I can do that. I can also explain to you the outside of the program factors that make your Adobe using experience go smoothly. (It's not all the program's fault) I'm available on weekends and evenings to teach you and make you better. I can meet you at your place or we can meet someplace neutral to both of us. I prefer you learn on your own machine. I can teach on a Mac or PC. I can show you how little differences there are between them concerning the subjects I teach.

I'm also a pretty well rounded artist. I can help you with most any art based quandary you are facing. Drawing, painting, sculpting or gluing sticks together. Ask if I can help. I'll teach anyone age 5 and up, so don't ever think you're too old to learn.

I'll make an Above Average Artist out of you.

I did mention that they are two very different things, especially when it comes to photo archiving and not actually editing any images. I'm sorry I couldn't help you though. I hope you get all those photos organized. You have a lot.

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.

Desktop Publishing

I hold a Vocational Certificate from Marchman VoTech in "Graphic Arts" and an Associate's degree in "Visual Communications" from the International Academy of Design & Technology (IADT) and a BFA majoring in "Sculpture" with a minor in "Sequential Art" from the Savanna College of Art & Design (SCAD). During and in between all that education I worked in large format printing, Illustration, graphic arts, web design and self publishing.

I've created books, pamphlets, posters, and individual one page documents. I've designed and organized on the computer, cut and glued mock ups and I've also done binding. I've also published and added to several websites.

That gives me more than a decade worth of experience using the software and hardware used in Desktop Publishing.

Drawing

Besides my education at 3 art schools and studying under a great many master artists. I have myself been drawing since I was a child. I can look and draw what I see or create the fantastic from my imagination. I can create scribly gesture sketches or I can render a photo-realistic likeness. I have over 20 years experience putting images on paper, Drawing.

Graphic Design

I hold a vocational certificate in graphic design as well as an Associates degree. I have also worked in printing and web design for over 10 years.

Graphic design is the culmination of several disciplines in art. Typography, illustration, and photography all come together. I have done this successfully for print and web for school and many companies.

I know how to bring together design principles, with practical applications to create a platitude of useful documents and images.

Macintosh

I currently own an orange clam shell iBook, a G3 Macbook, a Macbook Air and a iMac Desktop all in one. In addition to that I also have an original iPod, an iPod shuffle, an iPad2 and an iPhone 6+ that I will answer you on should you call me. All these devices have survived with me over the years.

I began using macs on the Apple 2 and later, learned all my design programs on the first iMacs. I've been using Macintosh computers and products for most of my life, both professionally and in my personal life. I also read the official biography of Steve Jobs.

Painting

I have a bachelor's degree in sculpture, minoring in Sequential art from the Savannah College of Art and Design. I also have an Associates degree in visual Communications from the International Academy of Design and technology. Both courses of study and Schools taught me color theory and required I produce paintings of many different styles and techniques. In addition to that I have years of experience producing my own paintings.

Public Speaking

I have been speaking publicly and openly since I was very young. I have never felt the fear of crowds as others sometimes do. I also studied communication and public speaking courses under an excellent professor in college.

I can share techniques on how to improvise, how to calm yourself, how to prepare your speech and how to prepare for your speech.

Let's talk...publicly.
