Adam VanHouten received his Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree in Painting and Art Education from Western Michigan University and a Masters in Education from Michigan State University. He currently is a full-time visual art instructor for Traverse City Area Public Schools, teaches workshops, and is an adjunct painting instructor at Northwestern Michigan College. Born and raised in Traverse City, he is an artist with a commitment to share his learning through his teaching and to continue to advocate for the expansion and growth of the visual arts in Northern Michigan.
VanHouten enjoys spending time with his three children and his wife, Beth. Living in the beauty of Northern Michigan allows him to travel quickly and easily to paint some of the most scenic spots in Michigan. If he is not painting, he is inspiring the next generation of artists, kayaking or hiking, or playing the guitar.
