Art Instruction

Lee Post has taught dozens of illustrations classes for kids from the age of 5 to 18 all over the state of Alaska.  His classes are based on the experiences he has gained as a self-taught comic artist and freelance illustrator.  The actvities are specifically designed for all skill levels and rely on an enthusiasm for drawing rather than technical skill.  Students are taught through a series of progressive lessons to combine basic drawings to tell a story, going from doodling to a full page comic story, with each session of classes crafted to fit your audience, location and timeframe.

Lee has taught classes for the Anchorage School District, the Dorothy Page Gallery, and teens detained at the McLaughlin Youth Center, as well as multi-hour, multi-day classes for the Girdwood Arts Camp, the Homer Library, the Juneau/Douglas Library,Willow Library and Anchorage’s 49 Writer’s Teen Program.  He's also taught in coordination with the Anchorage School District and the University of Alaska Anchorage's Northern Journey's program to help mentor student teachers on how to integrate art and culture into their day-to-day teaching practices. His lessons can be tailored from younger children to motivated teens and adults.  He has also presented on his art and career for the Anchorage Museum, the UAA Book Store, the Alaska Arts Council, and Fireside Books in Palmer, Ak.
