Hello everyone, I am Mr. Fenu and I am the new art educator at Oakland Avenue Charter School! I am excited for this wonderful year!
I was born in New Jersey, and lived there until I was 11 when I moved to Florida. When it was time to think about colleges, I ended up first attending Seminole State College looking to learn about sequential art. However, near the end of my time there, I realized teaching art was my true passion, and switched gears toward art education. Once I received my associates, I transferred over to UCF, and got my bachelors degree in art education.
During my time at UCF I studied many artistic movements and time periods. My favorite movements are Pop Art, Expressionism, Surrealism, and the Baroque time frame. As far as famous artists go, my favorite happens to be Roy Lichtenstein.
My plan for the year is to introduce the students to a multitude of artistic style, concepts, and medium.
