Teaching since:
2014

I am an artist, graduated from the Pennsylvania academy(PAFA) with a Bachelor in Fine art. My interest and concentration is in both Painting and Drafting. Art is my Passion, and to me it means many forms, from drafting, to painting, to intellectuality and how to represent it, to even more physical and energetic form like music. Education is my second passion, and i find it correlating perfectly with art. I love to educate and spread art as I think of myself as a very social, people oriented person.

I have multiple Years of experience in teaching Art. Recently taught Elementary school in an after school program, and the experience was wonderful.

I currently preform Professional demos(color theories, drawing and painting) and display in galleries. Currently working on new projects.

Moe is a good instructor, he has a lot of experience with teaching basics and intermediate topics in the fine arts. Not only is he familiar with traditional painting and techniques, but his practice itself is very innovative in inspiring you how to harness your own skills and seeing artmaking in your own way.
