NEWTON ROCHA

​​TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN :
​IT IS WITH MY GREAT PLEASURE TO RECOMMEND NEWON ROCHA AS AN ARTISTIC TEACHER.
MR. ROCHA WAS CONTRATED BY THE METROPOLITAN STATE COLLEGE OF DENVER CENTER FOR VISUAL  ART IN THE SPRING OF 2004. HE DEVELOPED A SERIES OF YOUTH WORKSHOPS FOR OUR ART BUILDS COMMUNITIES PROGRAM. THIS PROGRAM, A COLLABORATION WITH THE DENVER HOUSING AUTHORITY, PROVIDES HANDS-0N ART WORKSHOPS FOR YOUTH AGES 6-12 LIVING IN THE DHA DEVELOPMENTS.
MR. ROCHA WORKSHOPS FOCUSED ON DIFFERENT PAINTING TECHNIQUES ON CANVAS.
IN WORK WITH MR. ROCHA, I FOUND HIM TO BE A RESPONSIBLE, RELIABLE AND HIGHLY SKILLED ARTIST. YOUTH RESPONDED VERY WELL TO HIS STYLE OF TEACHING AND ENTHUSIASM FOR ART. HE ALSO IS ADEPT AT WORKING WITH DIVERSE POPULATIONS, MAKING HIS CLASSES A VERY POSITIVE ARTISTIC EXPERIENCE FOR EVERYONE. I FEEL THAT MR. ROCHA WOULD BE AN ASSET AND HAVE A POSITIVE INFLUENCE ON ANY PROJECT HE IS ENVOLVED IN. IT WAS MY PLEASURE TO WORK WITH SUCH A WONDERFUL ARTIST.
SINCERELY,
COURTNEY D. JENNINGS
EDUCATION PROGRAM COORDINATOR.
