MEET THE TEAM
Hello! My name is Andrew Zhang. I'm a senior from Del Norte High School and I've been doing art since I was 5. The medium I use the most are acrylics and digital media. My style is more leaning towards rendering and painting. I like to draw fantastical objects or characters influenced by my love of mythology. In this term of Art for Biology class, I will be mostly responsible for developing teaching materials and instructing the classes.
I’m Cynthia Li, a senior from Del Norte High School. I’ve always had an interest in art since I was very very little, and have continued till now self-learning digital art. I got the controversial manga/anime art style. My biggest weakness is that I specialize in drawing humans and only humans. Making use of my digital art experience, I teach the Digital Art class and can help with Paint Tool SAI, Photoshop, and Krita.

Heya! I’m Allen Chen, a senior at Del Norte! I’ve been drawing since I was a wee child, experimenting with all types of styles and mediums (sketching, painting, digital art, photoshop, animation, etc). I really love seeing how art can be used in stories and film. I do enjoy creating characters, and I’m currently teaching the Anatomy and Character Design Class. Looking forward to drawing with you all!
Hello! I’m Katherine, a senior at Del Norte High School. I started drawing when I was young and I decided to teach myself digital art in middle school (spoiler alert, I fell in love and it’s my main medium now). I rarely do line art and mostly stick to rendering and digital painting. My first program was Paint Tool SAI, but I also learned Photoshop basics and now use Procreate a lot too. I draw humans and landscapes most, and I teach the Digital Art class.

So excited to meet our newcomers and be a part of their journeys with art!

Hi! I’m Jocelyn, a junior at The Bishop’s School. I’ve always been doodling and drawing since I was young, but didn't start seriously until the last few years. I love color pencil, watercolor, and acrylics as well as multimedia art! I tend to draw more fantastical or unrealistic pieces. I’ve also been trying digital art recently.

Hello! I’m Noor Grewal and I’m currently a sophomore at Del Norte High School. I have been drawing and painting from a very young age, but I have been professionally learning art for seven years. I have also painted pet portrait commissions on the side for about three years. My favorite mediums to create with are watercolor, colored pencil, acrylic, and sketch pencil, however I love experimenting with new materials and techniques. My art is usually realistic and inspired by nature and animals, however I am trying to draw more humans. I will be teaching Creative Art and Art Basics I, and I cannot wait to help students enjoy art as much as I do :)
Hey, I’m Annie, a Sophomore at La Jolla Country Day. I started drawing in 6th grade. I mainly do character design and illustration in both traditional and digital. I have won multiple art contests throughout the years including two golden keys from scholastic, first place in 9-12th grade lvl for endangered species, etc. But mainly compare to contest, I enjoy doodling on my own a lot more. Currently I am burning through my 8th sketchbook. I am teaching characters designs and anatomy at the moment. I’m excited to meet and work with you guy.

In the end, I just like to doodle, and I’m looking forward to working with the students!
