Instructor Biography 

C.J. Guzan began teaching at The Art Garage in the summer of 2014, immediately following his graduation from the St. Norbert College Fine Art Program (Drawing, Painting, Sculpture, Graphic Design, Photography, & Film). His relevant work includes multiple popular comic strips, album cover artwork, and thousands of drawings of all sorts (some of which have been published in international magazines)! C.J. has taught Comics & Cartoons every year since 2014, and has even performed in a few special events at the Art Garage. 

He is the Corporate Education Director for the Interchange Theater Co-op in downtown Milwaukee (C.J. designs & curates workshops, trains performers, and performs in traveling Improv Shows), and is a professional Improviser and Actor. He is consistently performing in commercials for numerous industries, the most notable commercial of late being for Cousins Subs, where C.J. is excited to buy TWO sandwiches!

C.J. & Allyson (His best friend and wife) also welcomed their first child, Theo, into the world on August 16th, 2021! C.J. takes care of Theo during the day while working at home, and Allyson teaches her Kindergarten class just down the road from their house. If there is one thing that C.J. enjoys doing every year, it is teaching Comics & Cartoons at the Art Garage. The opportunity to take part in the creative process with so many skilled and imaginative students is nothing short of soul-fulfilling! C.J. takes pride in his individualized teaching method he’s developed over the last 10 years at the Art Garage, and is excited to see what amazing work this year’s SAW students will create!
