Miguel Rodez, Curriculum Vitae

 
Education

I learned to paint by studiously observing the work of master painters; by dutiful practice; and, by conducting self-directed research.  By the time I was 16 years old, I applied to three of the top American art magnet schools located in New York City and was accepted to all three of them.  I chose to attend the High School of Art and Design at the New York's Upper Eastside, a brief walk from the Museum of Modern Art, but for personal reasons, I was only able to take only introductory courses at said school for only part of one semester. Thus, I received only a basic introduction to the artistic process which was something that I had already accomplished, Not being able to complete what I had started left me quite distraught, as my dreams of pursuing a formal Fine Arts education were dashed in an instant.  I did take a course in Figure Drawing at the University of Miami, in Coral Gables, Florida, a few years later, but that too was an introductory course. However, I did earn a Bachelor of Arts in History from said university, which Degree included taking courses in Art History, which were quite edifying.  In light of the experiences that I underwent, I consider myself an autodidactic artist. My determination to never stop learning and to always give the best of myself is the reason that I have managed to succeed by achieving what I have set out to accomplish.
