... Self Expression
Dick Evans knows that a primary challenge for any art teacher is to overcome the I'm-not-an-artist mindset of most students. It can be tough breaking through this barrier and getting children and adults to let their creativity flow.
Over the years, Dick has developed a simple and non-threatening approach to drawing cartoons that has proven to be fun and educational for even the most stubborn individuals—which is why teachers everywhere want to have him instruct their classes.
Whether it is for one hour or multiple sessions, Dick has the ability to communicate with students while helping them unlock their creativity.
"It is awesome to watch an otherwise shy student open up and express him or herself," he said. "I have been told that some children are positively and permanently affected by my classes. Sometimes this is the first opportunity a student has taken to express his or her individuality, i.e., to be encouraged to let their uniqueness shine!"
