Welcome to the Art Classroom

Phyllis Boles


Born and raised in Texas.  Graduated from Stephen F. Austin High School in Bryan, Texas.  Then attended Sam Houston State Teachers College in Huntsville Texas.   Married for 57 years to a wonderful husband.  Blessed with twin sons.

Started painting in 1976.  Owned and operated a successful Arts and Crafts business in Mississippi for 16 years.  During that time, I taught painting lessons and eventually wrote and published several Painting instruction books.  Travelled several states to promote these books along with the wooden pieces that were mentioned in the books.  After retiring, moved to Winters, Texas.  Asked to teach Art at Winters High School.  Held this position for soon to be two years.  This has been an amazing two years.  I love teaching my students.  Each day is a great day.  They are willing to learn all aspects of painting.  My students brighten my day and I am thankful for this opportunity.
