Other interests

Jaime E. Villate. University of Porto, Portugal

I like to paint with oils and draw with pencils. I took painting lessons at the University of Rochester (Diane Sophrin), the Memorial Art Gallery of Rochester (Lynne Feldman and Peter Berg) and the Rochester Institute of Technology (Barry Dalgleish). The section Paintings shows some of my works.

I also like to participate in intercultural exchange programs. I worked with the Rochester International Friendship Council in the late 1980's and during the last years I have been a volunteer at Intercultura/ AFS (Portugal) and I have hosted several AFS exchange students.
