Welcome to Art Class!
I am pleased and honored to be a founding teacher at the Phoenix Coding Academy. Art has always been my passion. I am a working artist that regularly shows my work at different galleries and restaurants around Phoenix. I look forward to sharing my passion for art with my students!
Mr. Yocum resides in Phoenix, AZ. He has been an educator for the past 19 years and has taught all ages and many different subjects in the arts. Along with teaching high school students, he currently teaches printmaking to adults at the Mesa Arts Center and Xico, Inc. Arte y Cultura. Mr. Yocum is a working artist and enjoys creating pieces with bright, bold colors and some of his subjects include animals, creatures and objects of pop culture from the 1980s. His pieces can be seen around the valley in restaurants and galleries and he regularly participates in First Friday in downtown Phoenix.
