R.I.C. Featured Artist - Forrest Young

Accomplished artist and musician, Forrest Young, has been making a pronounced impact as a master of collaboration for more than 15 years.  His skills as an art director, illustrator, and instructor are well known and greatly respected.  As the Image & Audio Software Specialist for the Medical College of Virginia’s Instructional Development Center, he helped develop interactive CD-ROMs now in use at universities world wide. As a percussionist, his work as The Emergency Drummer has placed his name in the credits with regionally and nationally recognized talent. When he isn’t performing, or manipulating a multiplicity of mediums, he continues to teach and volunteer throughout Virginia at libraries, schools, and symposiums. Most recently he helped to score “The Sailor Bob Story” – A documentary tribute. Importantly, he also loves to laugh.
