Teaching Art

ART TEACHING EXPERIENCE

2007-2017
For the past ten years, I have independently taught studio art, contemporary art history, critical theory, art critique, social practice, and art institutionalism to adults and youth, from within my art studio and through two pedagogical art organizations that I founded, HABLA: Harvesting Asian Black Latino Artists (2007-2011) and BAILA: Black Artists in Los Angeles (2011-present), teaching sometimes as frequently as 12 hours per week of in-class time, plus preparation. I have also taught as a guest lecturer and art workshop leader at various institutions and universities, including UC Santa Barbara, Occidental College, Johns Hopkins University and University of Maryland, among others.

Below are some photos of the college students whom I currently teach and who are interning in my art studio. I teach them painting, art-making techniques, contemporary art history and critical art theory. I also conduct critiques of their artwork. In return for the free education I give them, they practice what I teach them on my work, and help me with my art career tasks. During the summer and winter breaks, we meet twice a week, for six hours each day, totaling twelve hours a week. We also meet during their school academic year.
