Mr. Gregory Atkins
Gregory “GREGGO” Atkins is a professional artist and educator who has been developing art such as paintings, murals, motion graphics, illustrations, animation, and other digital media for more than 20 years. He has created art for two former U.S. Presidents, celebrities, professional sports teams, and Fortune 500 companies. He holds a M.Ed. and M.F.A degree in painting from Miami University, a Bachelor of Science degree from The University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff and a Graphic Design Professional Certificate from Texas A&M.
Atkins has taught art in colleges and public schools for more than 18 years. He chose art education as a career at the age of 20 after making a promise to his former 6th grade art teacher, Earnest Sterling. He assured his childhood influence that he would make it his life long agenda to educate as many students as he could. In 2014 Atkins developed and created ATKINS ARTHOUSE, a company that specializes in children and young adult literature, graphic design, mural installations and conceptual art.
“My goal is to allow students the opportunity to passionately create art that has valid meaning far beyond their own perceptions.”
