Mr. Moore sits on school stairs. "Take risks and don’t worry about the outcome when you’re making it and don’t overthink it."

Lindsey Manor, Ranger Review Reporter

Mr. Moore is an art teacher at Lewis Palmer. He teaches photography, acrylic painting, drawing and studio art.

“I like to go to galleries, I like to see movements the most. I like to see abstractions but I gravitate towards impressionism the most. Impressionists, rather then using a camera, interpret it through color and shapes. There’s a lot of emotions to it. Van Gogh, Picasso, Georgia O’Keefe and Andy Warhol are a few of my favorite artists. My advice to young artists would be to not just do one thing, try multitudes of things. You’re able to see a lot more if you have something to contrast it with. Take risks and don’t worry about the outcome when you’re making it and don’t overthink it. I want my legacy to be for both Lewis Palmer and in my everyday life, to be, to help others recognize that they can create and they have inspiration within them. That’s what I’d like to mostly be remembered for: to help kids that think that they can’t create realize that they’re actually creators all the time.”
