About Troy

I have taught figure drawing classes since 2007 in a college setting since 2007. I have taught both freshmen and advanced level classes accredited BFA college in Cincinnati, Ohio. I also have designed summer intensive programs for youth and teens in a college setting. Lastly, I taught portfolio development classes to teens (juniors and seniors) that were instrumental in their acceptance into major visual arts programs.

My goal is to engage high school students to their potential on multiple levels. My approach is interdisciplinary and seeks to combine research and methodology to enhance a students awareness of his surroundings and contemporary issues that may impact the work.

Students already have great ideas, helping them facilitate those ideas into clear focused communication is always the challenge.
The simplest route to a complete education is Discovery.
I am focused on students from age 15 to 18 or traditional AP art students or home school students in this age group.
