Other interests and inspirations:

His non-art hobbies include traveling, biking, fishing, and tasting.

Devin’s teaching style:

He tells his students that if all of their work looks the same then he hasn’t done his job. He wants students to take a break from the modern world and make things by their own design. He encourages independence in the studio and asks that everyone come to each class with a specific goal in mind.

Devin loves EAC because . . .

It allows each instructor to teach their own style and at their own pace. As a public school teacher who has to follow curriculum and guidelines, he enjoys the freedom that comes with teaching at the Evanston Art Center.
