Artist for Marvel Comics' 
Thor, DeadPool, X-Men, Iron Man, Wolverine, and many other enormously
popular superheroes, shows students how math and science merge to create a superhero!


Say hello to your school presenter, Jerry DeCaire, and the Science of the Superhero!




Presentations are available for students of all grade levels
The format and content of each show is tailored to the level of the student audience.  All shows focus on the following components:

   The Anticipatory Set: The Influence of Math on Art
  Jerry demonstrates how geometric figures lay the foundation for a superhero! Changes in perspective and proportion are demonstrated and mathematical techniques are introduced.







Instruction on Facial Drawings

  Superhero faces are drawn from multiple perspectives using geometry, fractions, the science of anatomy, and are then given away-FOR FREE!.



Full-Figure Superhero Sketches
The presenter enthusiastically interacts with the students while drawing one of their favorite and most popular superheroes! The finished, full-figure superhero is then also given away-FOR FREE! Students thrill to this part of the presentation-no exceptions! 



FREE Drawings
All artwork is signed and given away to select students all throughout the presentation. Schools often do a raffle to determine the recipients of the drawings prior to the show. If a raffle isn't possible, simply present to the artist a log sheet showing the students who will be present. It's important that the finished art is given away in an unbiased and arbitrary fashion. The artist would greatly appreciate your help on this matter.

RIGHT ON TARGET!
