... 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 7.5 and older begin after Labor Day with a second semester starting in January.  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.   

Summer art camps for kiddos are are a week pure fun & lots of artsy-crafty projects June-mid August! 

Private lessons are available, email or text me.

Should online lessons become necessary they will be available for 3-6 students per class. 

Let me know if you are interested!
