Kids, Teens, and Adult Art Teacher
Kaspar Horsfield is a New York based artist and art educator who brings excitement, enthusiasm and livelihood to all of his art classes. Kaspar encourages a safe and happy learning environment where there is no fear of asking questions or being your genuine and authentic self. Kaspar’s teaching philosophy is “no student left behind”, meaning that all of the art classes he teaches accommodate a wide variety of learning styles. Feeling failed by the educational system due to having ADHD, Kaspar makes sure that he gives students multiple ways of processing information in his classes so they can succeed and have a positive creative learning experience. He combines verbal instruction, written instruction, and visual instruction for the optimal learning experience.
When Kaspar is teaching, he feels that no student should feel ostracized or left out because they might not understand something on the first go around. Kaspar loves when people ask questions and encourages it. There is no greater joy in his life as an art instructor than when a student is passionate about their interests!
Kaspar graduated with a Bachelors of Fine Arts in Graphic Design and a minor in Italian (é lui parla Italiano!) from Purchase College, SUNY. He also received a Certificate of Achievement from Putnam Northern Westchester BOCES in 2017 for Computer Graphics and Digital Photography.
Kaspar enjoys a variety of artistic mediums, including but not limited to: Digital Illustration, Comics and Cartooning, Intaglio, Woodcut, Linocut, Crocheting, Sewing, and Embroidery. He believes that the saying, “jack of all trades master of none, but better than master of one” encapsulates his artistic journey the best. Recently, he has been perfecting his skills in Costume Design by sewing his own outfits from scratch for the annual New York Renaissance Faire in Tuxedo, NY. Kaspar is enthusiastic to have a class with you!
