Profile and Credentials        

Fernando is the owner of the Sculpt Atlanta art studio. Born in Buenos Aires of Italian descent, I was the youngest of four children. I grew up in Long Island and attended Nassau Community College to study advertising design. In 1995 I moved to Atlanta, enrolling at Kennesaw State University as a studio art major. At KSU, I was an active member on the Visual Art Committee, exhibited over eight art exhibitions, winning awards in photography, pottery, and sculpture. During my senior year I had the opportunity to be a studio assistant to noted sculptor Barbara Rheingrover.In January 2000 I was selected as “outstanding senior in visual arts” receiving one of the university’s most prestigious awards. Shortly after graduation I began teaching stone sculpture at Spruill Center of the Arts, in Atlanta. My educational background and hard work has given me many opportunities, such as teaching arts classes for Roswell Recreation Center of the Arts and Cobb County Culture Affairs of the Arts. As an instructor I am thoroughly enjoying the challenges of teaching students how to work in the three-dimensional form. I have been recognized for my successful teaching techniques and empathy with students.
