Why I Teach
posted:
I've been teaching at SVA lo these 20 years. I began in the Continuing Ed world. Now teaching sophomores and seniors. And after being asked, beginning an evening class again. It's a different scene at night. Grown-ups, people who have been working in the graphic arts awhile or wanting to make a change. The conversations are different. I missed it. So here it is, beginning next week (still openings I understand).  SB's Open SVA Night Class.
This falls, it turns out, on the same week as I am honored by this profile of my teaching career along with 8 colleagues in the NY Observer by Cynthia Cotts:

I am grateful to SVA, The Observer and most of all, all my students over all the years, who have given me so many golden gifts.
What follows are a few illustrated  thoughts about why I love teaching.

I was asked this week by The New York Observer to contribute something to a section on the Paris atrocity. So much as been said. I wish the families and in fact all of us the strength to get through this time. Our lives and democracy are under siege. I knew Tignous, judged a Dogan contest with him in Istanbul. A more gentle, funny, light-hearted soul you would never meet. This is a world gone dangerously mad in 3D. Rather than draw another brave artist (can't get enough of those) I wanted to discuss the nexus between the terrorists and the far right in Europe. There is a neo-Nazi group in many countries waiting for such events to seize power as the Bushcheneys did here. Fascism surrounds. Know your enemy, I would like to say, it isn't Islam. It is Fascim and hate.
Peace.
