About the Instructor:

Laura Schofield was an instructor at Academic Talent Search (ATS) through CSUS for 15 years where she instructed grades 4 through 9 students in color theory, beginning cartooning, animation, Stop-motion and Anime/Manga. She currently teaches oil & chalk pastels, colored pencil, charcoal and pen & ink at University Art. “I love teaching art students of all ages. They are excited to participate and absorb everything we cover in class. This willingness and enthusiasm to learn makes me a better educator because I draw from their energy. Crocker Art Museum offers a program that enhances my teaching skills by allowing the freedom to be flexible in my curriculum, thus permitting me to match the student’s needs and learning pace.”
