 ... let me tell you about myself and Tyler Art School!

About Linda Wheat

Interrupting a successful career as an artist in the New Orleans area, Hurricane Katrina landed me in Tyler so I could be near my grandkids!  Friendly, beautiful Tyler

After 10 years teaching Middle and Upper School Art at All Saints Episcopal School here in Tyler, I retired, but not really...


About Tyler Art School:

Teaching art is so fulfilling, I have opened Tyler Art School.  Here, at my home (3615 Woodbine Blvd.)  I've created a bright, sunny & spacious teaching studio for small classes. I care about my students &

we get to know each other well! 

  • School-year semester art lessons for students age 9 and older begin after Labor Day with a second semester starting in January.  Homeschool classes are ages 6 and up.  The classes focus, in a relaxed way, on developing essential foundational skills in drawing, painting, collage, and printmaking (with an occasional 3-D project). Lessons are based on the Elements of Art & the Principles of Design and contain meaningful references to Art History.                              Registration for classes opens July 15 for Fall and November 15 for Spring.  With registration questions, please contact

  • Summer art camps for kiddos are are a week pure fun & lots of artsy-crafty projects June-mid August! Most camps are for ages 6 and up... however there are 2 camps for ages 4.5-7 and the back-to-school "Mother's Relief" camp in August for 5 and up.  A sculpture exploration camp is for 9 and up. Registration for summer camps opens March 1.  With registration questions, please contact 

  • Private lessons are available, email or text me. Let me know if you are interested!           




Thank you for your interest in Tyler Art School!


Ms. Linda Wheat
