Hello! My name is Mikal Boston and I am excited to say this is my 4th year teaching. I grew up in Houston, Texas and graduated from the University of Houston with a Bachelor of Arts in Art and a minor in Art History.
While growing up with an artist for a mother I was exposed to what a wonderful tool of self-expression and exploration art could be. As an educator, my greatest joy is seeing what students are able to create when they feel they have the freedom to express themselves and are encouraged to do so. My education philosophy is that as an educator, my job is to build good relationships with my students in which there is mutual respect and a positive classroom community.
Some of my favorite artists include Henri Matisse, Vincent Van Gogh, Frida Kahlo, Jean Michel Basquit and Edward Hopper. A lot of my other art inspiration comes from my love of traveling and discovering new music and places.
