Creative & Research Biography
As a Florida native, I am familiar with the geological, cultural and historical aspects of my home state. I have affectionately earned the title of “Hues!” by my colleagues and students. I think it fitting being an art teacher. I am humbled by the opportunity to serve my community as a professional art educator and have enjoyed teaching at the same school now for almost six years.
I attempt to build relationships combining comedic wit and personal investment with an enduring passion for family, learning, teaching and art creation. I strongly believe that art education is important in and out of the classroom, dedicating my life to serving others throughout. I currently work for the Marion County Public School System, Ocala, Florida. I earned a B.F.A. from The Savannah College of Art and Design in Photography with a minor in art history in 1993. I am proficient in traditional and contemporary studio art disciplines bringing a wealth of knowledge to a culturally diverse art classroom and school system.
I have facilitated community based art programs and been involved in community art sponsored events professionally and personally. As a previous photographer and writer for The New York Times Regional Media Group and various Florida Lifestyle Publications, I bring real world experience to an educational setting. I have owned and operated Scott Hughes Photography and Design for 12 years shooting for personal and professional clientele. I now spend much of my time being a husband, father, teacher and student while mentoring the youth of my community. I am a currently enrolled at The University of Florida and will be receiving my Masters in Art Education fall of 2015.
