As some of you may know I’ve been teaching a Matte Painting class for the past two years at one of the local Los Angeles Art colleges.
It has been a hugely rewarding experience working with the students. It has also been an interesting challenge at looking at what I do and break it down into bite size pieces for the class to distill. It has made me relearn what I take for granted. I had no idea how much of what I have learned over the years has become simple muscle memory. To look at all aspects of what we do in our careers and segment it into concrete steps for others to easily follow and understand is harder than it sounds.
I will begin teaching another class, Digital Mattes, at the Studio Arts facility. The class is in Los Angeles if anyone in the area is interested. This is my first class at Studio Arts. It was a great honor to be asked to teach. I am very excited, this class will be working professionals looking to add to their training and allow me a different interaction in teaching. The class will begin April 25th, Saturday from 4pm to 7pm. Here is a link to the course:
