Walter Myrick graduated from Tyler in May of 2010 with a Bachelors of Science in Art Education. He immediately began teaching in Philly public schools and "earned his stripes" at University City High School and Sheridan West Academy Middle School. His goal is always to provide his students with a meaningful art education experience that combines traditional art principles and modern ways of making art. He challenges his students to think, explore, create and have fun in a safe and inclusive environment. Walter's art is heavily influenced by comic books, video games, horror movies and "geek culture." This is appropriately reflected in his classroom/studio. Walter shares his creative process and work with his students as he wants them to see him as not only an art teacher but an artist.
