Ted Smuskiewicz

After about 30 attempts to properly spell and Google his name -- I finally hit the right combination of letters and found Ted's website.

He's especially important to the recent history of the Palette and Chisel because so many current and/or famous members took his painting class at the American Academy (Scott Burdick, Nancy Guzik, Rose Frantzen, Scott Tallman Powers, Sue Lyon, etc)

But he's not as well known as our other famous teacher, Richard Schmid, perhaps because his paintings are more visionary than enjoyable.

But perhaps his day will eventually come.

Ted was really underestimated at the P and C- possibly because he was a not totally approving of some of the methods Richard Schmid was preaching. He is a heck of a nice guy and was a good teacher. I and many people I know recieved a lot from him.
