My name is Drew Bandish. I am an artist and teacher of popular art classes in San Diego, California - lately, at Foothills Adult Center in El Cajon, the La Mesa Adult Enrichment Center, and MiraCosta College’s Community Services programs. I am frequently called upon to demonstrate methods and materials, conduct workshops and serve as juror for art exhibitions throughout San Diego County.I earned my B.A. in Painting and Printmaking and my art teaching credential from San Diego State University. Since 1987, I have dedicated my teaching time to helping others find pleasure, confidence and skill in all art mediums. I am very proud of the numerous success stories among students in our programs ~ several of whom now regularly win awards in art shows they enter. I was nominated Outstanding Instructor by students and staff, which resulted in my receiving the first annual Oasis Award in 2011 for exceptional achievement in teaching with Grossmont Adult Schools. Since then, five of our students have received the Outstanding Student award.
As a dedicated, life long learner, I appreciate that teaching, demonstrating techniques and preparing lessons has accelerated my own art skills and enhanced my visual perception and creativity, as well. 
I was awarded Signature status for successful participation in the San Diego Watercolor Society at the club's  38th International Exhibition in October 2018. You can find a number of my watercolor paintings published in Land of Sunlight - Contemporary Paintings of San Diego County by San Diego Flora, James Lightner, editor. The 2007 book features 450 color plates and is laid out as a geographic tour of San Diego County's coast, valleys, mountains and desert by 110 living artists.
