Richard’s educational philosophy includes the following notions:

    as opposed to being “taught”

"One of the most informational and entertaining speakers I've seen. I learned a ton. I especially loved his attitude toward everything."

“I'm applying what I learned in the class everyday! Only thing I'd change is make the class longer :)"

“You opened our eyes to a new way of looking …we appreciated being free to take whatever subjects caught our imagination. You were generous with your time and your comments were helpful.”

“Rick has a gift for teaching, a very helpful but good way of critiquing submissions and, most important, what he teaches is immensely useful. His visuals are excellent and can be very thought-provoking.”
