Georgian LaGuardia, Drawing & Painting
Georgian LaGuardia is an accomplished artist and educator. She received her Master of Fine Arts in Illustration from Syracuse University. Georgian is recently retired from her position as Associate Professor of Art with Cuyahoga Community College at the Western Campus where she taught Art courses for more than twenty-five years. Her specialty was teaching beginning and advanced drawing and design. In addition she has also taught courses in Graphic Design, Web Design, computer-aided drawing, Art History and Art Appreciation. As an artist using traditional materials, she especially enjoys drawing and painting the still life and landscape in charcoal, pastels, oils, and acrylics. Influenced by the beauty of nature, her work seeks to represent the designs she finds in nature, often emphasizing light and texture.
During her career as an educator prior to joining Cuyahoga Community College, she has designed and taught art classes for Pre-K to College level students, mentored gifted students and trained groups in business and the graphic design and publishing industries on the current software. At the beginning of the digital age, Georgian found the perfect match for her love of math, science and art as a website designer. There she painted and illustrated with PhotoShop and created graphic designs with computer code while running her own business. Georgian continues to teach workshops and create art.
