To whom it may concern:
I am writing this letter to recommend Mr. Dawood Marion Sekhem as an arts instructor.
I first met Mr. Sekhem while he was working for Friends of Sharon Art Studio as a drawing instructor. He has been an instructor at the Studio since 2008, and during that time, he has taught adult and youth drawing and painting classes including a class entitled, “Drawing Tool Box.”
Comments from students follow:
- He is also passionate about his work as an instructor and artist. He brings the highest level of artistic standard to the classroom, and seeks to introduce students to a wide breadth and depth of techniques and tools. Most importantly, he is a skillful artist himself, inspired and inspiring and this affection for art making is translated to his teaching.
Based on largely favorable class evaluations, students found Mr. Marion to be an effective and informative instructor.
Comments by students follow:
- He knows his stuff and is effective in his demonstration of techniques.
- He genuinely cares for his students and despite his mastery of drawing, he still his able to pass along his knowledge and instill self-confidence in his students. I would not know how to improve it (his class).
- Engaging teacher.
- Was very open with his techniques and tips.
I’m totally confident that Mr. Sekhem could prove to be a valuable asset to any arts teaching program. Please feel free to contact me if you need additional information.
