Review for Amario's Art Academy for the Gifted and Talented , Atlanta, GA, USA
I am an instructor at Amario's Art Academy for the Gifted and Talented . Several years ago I began volunteering at the Academy while completing my college studies Over the years I have seen many students grow & prosper.. At Amario's Art Academy, students are in a welcoming and safe learning environment . Pablo Picasso once said “All of us are artists, then we grow up..” Academy students like being in an environment in which they can freely express themselves art through comic book art, life drawing, and animation. Amario & Shondella are a blessing to me and the students they serve. We all want to make sure that students understand what it takes to be a leader and to be an inspiration to other people.
Academy students of all ages and skill sets arrive at the Academy ready to learn, sometime within a couple of weeks they became a complete masters at drawing comics, computer animation, and painting. The still Life drawing class was one of the favorite classes for our Summer Camp Students, our "Look and Draw" technique is widely used in professional drawing classed at SCAD & Art Institute of Atlanta. Once our students really understood the ideas of the elements & principles of design, they were able to collaborate their drawings and work in a comprehensive manner. As I continue to work with this organization, it helps me to become a better teacher, a better artist, and a good leader !

If I had to make changes, i would add and additional art program that would teach Photography, and Bible Illustration for home school students/regular students during the weekdays. I would make our acadmey bigger for more and more students who want to do art!!!
