scott.jpgHello! My name is Scott Renk and I am an art teacher at Mary Phillips High School, where I have been teaching for eight years. Through this job I have learned that art can change the course of the most downtrodden individual in a more positive and meaningful way. I am also an artist and animator who has had the good fortune of having my films screen at film festivals worldwide, even winning best film. I am self taught in the world of animation, preferring to create hand drawn and stop motion animation. I have goals of creating much more art and animation, and of creating more programs to reach At-Risk individuals and help them achieve their true potential.
Awards and Honors:
Winner grand prize "Best Film" for my film "Baron" at the 3 Minute Film Festival Sante Fe, New Mexico.Best in show 2011 for my animation "Godzilla" for the "Monster Mash" art show at the Visual Art Exchange.Film screenings:Festivus Film Festival 2012 Denver, Co.
