Resume | CV

Frank Reaver

I’m a passionate artist and educator that is currently educating students at Century High School located in Sykesville, Maryland.  During my time in Anne Arundel County I was recognized for creating a rigorous magnet art program responsible for rapidly developing student artistic skill at the 6th through 8th grade level.  My expertise encompasses a broad range of both traditional and digital media.  Abilities include creating sophisticated, technically skilled, eye catching artwork with emphasis on contrast and composition.  I'm accustomed to multi-tasking and working in a demanding environment while displaying intrinsic motivation for excellence in both my art and career.
