Instructor bio:
"My name is Adam Aguilar, (@more.leaders) I'm 30 years young and grew up in Rialto CA. Been an artist for most of my life and I have experience in many backgrounds of art and found out all my skills come pretty naturally. Recently since last September, I've started my new art series called Geo-threads, aka thread/string art. Inspired by my love for sacred geometry and the math behind it that reflects the golden ratios, along with the inspiration/motivation from an artist in Brazil named Iram Liam, I wouldn't be here today if it weren't for his art. Since the beginning of the year I decided to get more involved with the art community and expand the awareness of my art at the same time. Before I never really thought about being more involved like I am nowadays but I noticed how great of a community this area has. I do believe as awareness grows about what people are achieving within their home town it'll motivate others to do the same and continue this growth cycle and promote all ages to continue creating their dreams a reality all while helping their neighbors achieve them as well."
