Hello, I'm Jerry T.
Education-I have been teaching art in academic and private settings to children and adults for more than 25 years. After studying in New York City at the New York Academy of Fine Art, the School of Visual Art, and the Art Students League, I received my MA in Painting from State University of New York at New Paltz. In addition to art, I have also been playing and teaching drums professionally for many years. Capturing the world of beauty through creating art has always been inspiring for me, and pushes me to challenge myself above all. Through the years, I have continued my love for drawing and painting, and I consider it as a form of yoga. These disciplines have shown me the gifts of patience, calmness, and the magic behind creating art and perseverance. As a drummer, I have been playing since the age of 14. My musical interests span all types of styles, which dovetails with my art making and appreciating the masters works as well. I especially love teaching because I learn so much more through the interactions with students. Students have shown me how I can be a better teacher. Swimming is still my #1 exercise.
