Mr. Burton - Home

About Me-

This will be my fourteenth year at SLHS and sixteenth year as a teacher overall, having spent time at both the elementary and middle school levels as well. I am currently teaching Drawing, Digital Art, and IB Art courses. In addition, I am a sponsor of the LINK program.

Prior to becoming a teacher, I acquired my Bachelor of Fine Arts in Art with an emphasis in Graphic Design from Western Colorado University in Gunnison, Colorado. I spent time in the field working as a graphic designer within the art department of a sportswear company, and also dedicated a portion of my time as a professional to establishing a large body of fine art that has been displayed in Denver galleries through group and solo exhibitions.  Those experiences helped to develop my own art skills and give me a great foundation of what it takes to have successes in the art world - all of which I try to incorporate into my classes on a daily basis.  

Each class I teach will be run through google classroom.  All assignments and references can be found in that location. Assignments will also be turned in at that location as well.  I will provide a google classroom code to all new students. 

If you look to the left, you will find additional information about the different classes I teach. If you have further questions, please feel free to contact me directly using the information below.
