Atlanta Stacked 2022 by George Galbreath


I was destined to become an art educator, primarily because of the amazing art teachers throughout my high school and post-secondary experience. These were educators who planted, cultivated, and nourished the seeds of art appreciation and creativity. I have followed their lead in my career and taught high school art since 2003. Teaching has offered me a sense of purpose and pride. As an art educator, I am shaping the future and impacting the lives of our next generation of artists.

My mentor (renowned artist) Kevin Cole, who I taught with for a decade at Westlake High School in Atlanta, showed me that a full-time art educator could also be a full-time artist and that one of the greatest lessons and gifts I could give my students is a front-row view of the creative process. With discipline and support from my school I’ve been able to participate as an artist in group shows, national competitions, and two solo exhibitions. My students traveled to my solo exhibit in Baton Rouge. We frequently attend art museums, galleries, and artists’ talks (both in and out of the classroom setting.)

It is my mission to provide young artists with the same information, tutelage, and experiences that I received from Mr. Cole and so many other art educators in my life and to connect them with multiple facets of the arts ecosystem. As an art educator who is also a practicing artist, I have come to realize that both creating art and teaching students how to create art is an equally gratifying experience.
