• Hello Everyone! Welcome to Mr. X's Online Classroom!

    I attended Peoria High from 1989-1993 and am very happy to be working here.  I primarily teach Art 1 and Ceramics I and II.
     
    I attended Bradley University where I earned a BFA in Ceramics and Painting.  I also earned an undergraduate major in Art History.  After Bradley University, I attended the University of Illinois, for a year of post-baccalaureate study and then finished my education at The University of California, Davis.  After earning a Master's of Fine Arts in studio art from UC Davis, I taught on the college level.
     
    After returning to Peoria, due to my mother's health, I returned to Bradley University to earn a K-12 teaching certificate.  I have taught at Limestone Community High School, Woodruff High School, and then returned to Peoria High. 
     
    Additionally, I have worked for a variety of artists: painters, potters, printmakers, and sculptors. 
     
    Mr. X has a few hobbies that take up a lot of his free time.  I really enjoy playing pool and I am an active league pool player and enjoy playing in pool tournaments across the Midwest.  I have won the American Pool Player Illinois State 8ball Championship and other titles along the way :)
     
    I continue to make painting and pottery on regular basis: abstract paintings dealing with circles and circular motion and pottery on a potter's wheel that is wood fired at a kiln located in Boone County Kentucky.
     
    I also have a modest record collection that is rapidly approaching 7,000.
