Tony personifies CAW’s mission with a steadfast commitment to youth empowerment through the arts, as a grass-roots activist and as a consummate professional in leading the creative direction of the organization and pedagogy of our arts educators.

Tony’s teaching experience includes an array of art classes for a wide range of students and media. He worked for many years with elementary school children as a studio artist for the City School District of New Rochelle; in both New York City and Connecticut, he has taught teen studio art classes and mural painting, and a variety of life drawing classes and workshops for adults, including at the Riverstone Senior Center in Washington Heights.

His political drawings have appeared in publications such as The New York Times, the New York Daily News, and The Nation; commercial clients include Joe Boxer Sportswear and Lloyd’s of London.

Tony’s education also illustrates the depth and diversity of his artistic talents: communication arts at California Polytechnic University, illustration at The art Center College of Design, classical sculpture and plaster casting at Venice Studio School, anatomy at UCLA and anatomy, sculpting, oil painting and pastels at The Art Student’s League in New York. A recipient of the Edward G. McDowell Travel Grant, Tony is the only person in the long history of this prestigious award to receive it based on a portfolio submission consisting exclusively of drawings.

Education
Anatomy

UCLA's primary purpose as a public research university is the creation, dissemination, preservation and application of knowledge for the betterment of our global society. To fulfill this mission, UCLA is committed to academic freedom in its fullest terms: We value open access to information, free and lively debate conducted with mutual respect for individuals, and freedom from intolerance. In all of our pursuits, we strive at once for excellence and diversity, recognizing that openness and inclusion produce true quality. These values underlie our three institutional responsibilities. Learning and teaching at UCLA are guided by the belief that undergraduate, graduate and professional school students and their teachers belong to a community of scholars. This community is dedicated to providing students with a foundational understanding of a broad range of disciplines followed by the opportunity for in-depth study in a chosen discipline. All members of the community are engaged together in discovering and advancing knowledge and practice. Learning occurs not only in the classroom but also through engagement in campus life and in communities and organizations beyond the university.
