James Cox Bio:
I am an artist and art educator from Staten Island. I have been studying visual art since high school. I attended LaGuardia high school of visual and performing arts where I developed a love for drawing and oil painting. I then attended Pratt Institute where I studied illustration and communications design, applying my knowledge of traditional media to modern picture making projects. I then studied at Brooklyn College in their early childhood education program where I received my masters degree in art education. For the past 3 years, I have been making art and teaching at Staten Island academy as the 2-D art teacher. In 2022, I was able to study at Grand Central Atelier in Brooklyn, where I studied classical drawing techniques, as well as spent time learning with acclaimed art teacher Ken Goshen at a private studio in Chelsea. In both programs, I drew and painted from the live model, as well as casts, to fully uncover the techniques found in classical aesthetics. My personal approach as an artist draws from all the wonderful approaches and practices I have studied and I am so very excited to return to Art Lab to share the knowledge I’ve acquired the past few years.
