Michael Barton is an international award winning visual artist, instrument builder, educator and musician. His growing collection of mixed media pieces and commissions have made an impact on how his audience views the visual arts. Being a lifelong student of the humanities, Michael received a Master of Music degree from the University of North Texas in 2000 and 10 years later became a Master Photographer with the Professional Photographers of America en route to being accepted as a Fellow with the American Society of Photographers. Along his journey, Michael has maintained a strong commitment to teaching and academia. Having taught a diverse range of topics including music, speaking at major conventions, teaching private lessons, consulting and lecturing at the collegiate level has given Michael an edge when it comes to adapting to different learning styles and environments. Michael’s true passion is in connecting with students and mentoring in smaller, personal groups and one on one sessions. Creating a hands-on experience is a unique gift and one that is meant to be shared. Bringing people together while forming personal relationships is at the core of what drives Michael in everything he does.
