ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR
Don Longo was born in the Berkshire Mountains of Massachusetts, within 5 miles of the Norman Rockwell studio. As often as possible, he would ride his bike to the studio and watch Rockwell paint. The realistic images of every day life inspired him to pursue his own artwork. At the age of ten, Don designed his grandmother's tombstone, and he knew then that art was going to be a major part of his life.
Don studied physical education and art in college, and he later pursued a Masters degree in physical education while still studying art. He has coached physical education and taught art at Sherman high school, Irving high school and, during this time, received certification in Art Education from the University of North Texas.
Don has since taught art Tom all levels. He finds teaching introductory level art most rewarding, where students learn all the basics and he can see their talent and confidence grow.
