Michael Lee

Department Chair/Faculty Digital Media 207.216.4367

Birthed in the deep snow of CNY, and raised among the waves of the mighty St. Lawrence River, 迈克尔年轻时随家人搬到新英格兰,并深深爱上了在美国可爱的基石上根深蒂固的乖戾的洋基文化. Initially not receptive to traditional models of education, Michael grudgingly completed high school and worked for years in factory jobs, focused on the routine life of the everyday. 最终,高等教育和以职业为基础的工作的召唤吸引了他离开以生产为基础的劳动力,进入学校,迈克尔学习艺术和传播. Art specifically interested Michael, as he had a natural proclivity and familiarity with due to his childhood and his father. As a boy, he grew up in his father’s painting studio, drawing and working next to his Dad, watching him working and hearing stories about his Grandfather who was also an oil painter. This lifelong love of art would lead to college, which led to Michael’s natural teacher emerging to help other students who were struggling. 这引起了一位老师的注意,他鼓励迈克尔继续攻读硕士学位,成为一名艺术老师. Due to his love of Martial Arts, Michael had been teaching for a while already in his dojo and knew he loved helping students learn. Now he pursued the educational credentials to go along with his natural love of teaching, and make teaching a career instead of just a hobby. 在他的研究生工作期间,在私营部门的多年工作使迈克尔积累了与他将要教授的领域相关的经验, and provided a real world project based approach to teaching. Michael teaches in the areas of Graphic Design, Animation, Gaming and traditional Art. 他在教学中最喜欢的事情是,当他看到一个学生实现了他们以前怀疑自己的能力, and the joy and confidence that achievement brings to them. Michael lives in Dover, NH with his wife Wendy and his 6 year old daughter Zella, who shares Michael’s love of art and creates drawings and sculptures with him almost daily. In addition to the teaching at the College and his Dojo, Michael is an artist and sculptor and frequently displays his work.
