Come Meet Our Master Artist Mentor: Thomas S. Cleveland, a Master Coin Designer for the United States Mint, during its Artistic Infusion Program and the Founder of The Artist Within Studio School. Mr. Cleveland's intuitive down to earth and nurturing teaching style originated at The Houston School of Art & Design as one of its lead Instructors from 1997- 2004. Then in May of 2004, he founded The Artist Within Studio School, located in Cypress, combining a working studio and school further refining the program. We utilize the classical method of a Master Artist mentoring students through individualized instruction to pass down our knowledge and experience to students so they can also master drawing and painting techniques to expand their art arsenal, build their artistic confidence, and inspire them to develop their own style. This was how Leonardo and other Masters of the Renaissance in Florence first learned and taught, passing their wisdom down to us. 

I enjoy inspiring students by teaching them techniques to realize their untapped talent was always within them waiting to shine through their artwork.
