My name is John Wang, a seasoned instructor experienced in teaching traditional drawing, digital painting and animation with the goal to bring out students’ fullest potential in learning visual aesthetics and storytelling.
DIGITAL ART + ANIMATION
My fortes include initiating courses from scratch and teaching students from varied cultural and ethnic backgrounds and age groups. At the St. George University where I am teaching currently, I have launched several certification animation programs in line with industrial standards. During my teaching career, I have been working with a diverse student populace ranging from young North American undergraduates to senior Caribbean administrators. I glean great satisfaction from teaching and interacting with students and witnessing their progress
As an artist with sustained passion, I have devoted myself to drawing in multidisciplinary fields through my education, illustrations, experimental animated short films, and animated sculptures to name just a few. Through my postgraduate study, I explored the potential application of an innovative whole body drawing tool for enhancing the therapeutic effect of art therapy.
