Hattaway's Spring Schedule 2019-2020
Mr. Hattaway teaches commercial art and 3D art, advises the yearbook staff and the WXHS Art Club. He can be found training and teaching Aikido several evenings per week at the Salt Lake Aikikai and Aikido Mountain West dojos. Aikido is Japanese martial art that focuses on blending with an incoming attack, neutralizes the attack using principles of physics, and protects the attacker from harm – picture a mashup of Tai Chi and gymnastic floor routine. He is currently ranked nidan. Mr. Hattaway also teaches a knitting class at Blazing Needles in Sugarhouse, typically on the first Saturday of the month.
Mr. Hattaway fell in love with the French Impressionists at an early age, and developed a soft spot for the American Abstract Expressionists' work with age and art history classes. He holds a bachelors of fine arts with a ceramic emphasis from the University of Utah, but doesn't really play in the mud anymore. He will complete an MS in Curriculum and Instruction from Western Governors University in late January 2020.
Mr. Hattaway came to Woods Cross after spending two plus decades designing web sites, developing web applications, doing graphic design work, and reading the instructions to computers and software for people unwilling to read instructions. He discovered that helping young people express themselves through graphic design principles and Adobe's Illustrator software brings a ridiculous amount of joy and satisfaction with his new work paradigm.
