Hello! My name is Jason Pinsker and I am an art educator, artist and designer. I grew up in North Hollywood, California and currently teach Art/Design, Cinematography, Animation and Applied Technology classes here at Hoover.
I have also worked in the Television and Motion Picture industries as a Special Effects Artist with credits on productions including: The Chronicles of Narnia, Transformers, X-Men Origins: Wolverine, The Walking Dead, and Oz: The Great and Powerful. I have also designed various logos/brand identities, illustrations, animations and concept designs in a freelance capacity.
I believe heavily in the importance of arts education and consider it my duty to facilitate students with the tools necessary to express themselves creatively. I am also a proponent of using traditional art methods and concepts to prepare students to engage with contemporary art forms, industries, and emerging technologies.
