As both a graduate and adjunct faculty of more than a decade of service at the Art Center College of Design the independent student can share in the most first class elite theory, technology, and practice available anywhere.
Then there is the work.
Libero Di Zinno was my professor at Art Center College and later a mentor for independent study as well. He is nothing short of amazing as a teacher. Libero always found ways to teach his students to think outside the box. Beyond the classroom, he has always been a teacher that is inspiring in his own practice. As a former student of his Libero has always invested in my career, connecting me with contacts in the industry. He has allowed me to work on projects that helped my resume flourish. This growth in my body of work helped lead me to apply and win jobs with several pro sports teams in the MSL and NFL. He is not just a great teacher - he is an advocate for great work. You will see the difference in any students trajectory that takes his tuition! Sincerely, Stephanie Romero [email protected] www.stephanieromeroimagine.com
Mr. Di Zinno is nothing short of amazing as a professor and his knowledge goes beyond the classroom. He is one of the most engaging teachers I ever had. Pushed to my full artistic ability, projects in his class were driven by each students desire and passion for what they wanted to shoot. Encouraged to face challenges and problem solve, valuable skills in the photographic world. He always discovers ways to teach a student to think outside the box. For example, he has always been a teacher that is inspiring in his own life. Mr. Di Zinno has always invested in my career, connecting me to contacts in the industry. He has allowed me to work on projects as an intern to allow my resume to flourish. This professional growth has led me to jobs with MLS and NFL teams. He is not just a teacher. He is an advocate for the art form. Sincerely, Stephanie Romero
One of the best things I can do when meeting a new student is pause to consider the gap between us. There may exist an age gap, or a culture gap or even a language gap.
To bring us to more common ground one of the best exercises I give my students in the first class is THE TOP TEN LIST assignment.
10 people you are inspired by (living)
10 places you want to go
10 things you must do before you die
10 dream jobs or clients in photography
If we are doing this quietly, thoughtfully by ourselves we may illuminate some of the most imporant things about why we are attracted to this in the first place. Perhaps I have been places, met people and done things you are interested in and can share that experience.
Or more likely, you are going to take me to school and show me people, (arists, musicicans, writers) that I have never known! This begins a conversation between teacher and student that is based upon sharing, love of learning and the confidence that each has something to bring to the lessons.
We go from there.
