You get fun, effective, multi-disciplinary teaching that connects educational art learning with fulfilling personal expression. Pindaro’s formal training covers a wide range of the visual arts spectrum; from technical illustration and graphic design, to classical fine arts including printmaking and sculpture; and many other kinds of art forms. Over his extensive career, Pindaro has acquired in-depth knowledge of various artistic techniques and materials such as graphite, charcoal, colour pencils, and dry pastels; as well as, watercolours, inks, acrylic, and oil paints. This versatile teacher-artist is comfortable giving an in-depth interactive theoretical lecture as he is delivering a life drawing or painting demonstration. He is an approvable instructor with a sense of humor able to apply sound classroom management and create an open, communicative, and supportive environment, in which each student feels safe, secure, and appropriately challenged. Pindaro believes that to grow as a teacher and as an artist, one should be open to all means of expression, experiment with innovative mediums, and be open to appreciate artworks from different perspectives.
