Teaching Experience:

 

Elmira College, Elmira, NY, 1999 – present
Professor of Art,
Full-time, Tenured, Fine Arts Division, Department of Art
I teach all levels of painting, drawing, figure drawing, and digital imaging
In addition, I also created and teach a unique course every two years entitled; Under the Floorboards – Hidden Art of the Holocaust. The 275-page syllabus involves a comprehensive visual survey course on the history of the Holocaust, with a particular focus on clandestine artwork and SS commissioned artwork made by prisoners inside Nazi concentration camps and ghettos from 1933-45. Course content includes thorough components of; Hitler’s own art portfolio, official Nazi art and film, German and Allied Propaganda art and Degenerate Art. I also teach a rare off-campus course known as “Project DUMBO” an all-encompassing course based in Brooklyn where nine select art majors live and work together in a loft and explore the challenges of life in the city for a young artist.
