One of the teachers in our school district that I have tremendous respect for is Mr. Rob Schwartz at Seminole Ridge High School. Mr. Schwartz does phenomenal work with his students, teaching graphic and web design in way that brings out his students’ expressiveness in remarkable ways. The image you see here is from his own website where he hosts a Best of the Best student art gallery featuring student art work that meet his demanding standards. (Love those red glasses!) If you’re teaching graphic design and want some examples to show your own students this is a great place to start.
Mr. Schwartz is also one of those incredibly generous teachers who makes his time, ideas, and resources available to his peers around the world and is active in the Adobe Education Leaders program . You can find all sorts of great tutorials and resources that he’s produced for his students at his BrainBuffet.com website, with a focus on Photoshop and Illustrator and some Dreamweaver thrown in for good measure.
So, hats off to Mr. Schwartz and to his students at Seminole Ridge! To the students, you are in great hands and you have a great year ahead of you with Mr. Schwartz. We’ll be looking to see your artwork added to the Wall of Fame, and to see your industry certifications hanging on the wall by year’s end.
