I've been teaching at MCAD for eight years and I've taught a class called Tools of the Trade every year since I started. It's a class where students learn how to play with and learn different techniques in all sorts of traditional-art media. I love creating artwork with all sorts of tools, and this year will be my first year handing it off to another teacher (my good friend Adam Hoppus - Good luck, Adam!). I'm sad to give it up, but I've signed on to teach a different crazy awesome class, Digital Illustration (for which I have an undying love for). So, farewell Tools of the Trade. When school starts again in two weeks, I'll be thinking of you!
