Wheeler, who has served as a juried show judge, currently teaches beginning and advanced oil painting
at the College of the Mainland’s Lifelong Learning Program and at Galveston College in the continuing
education department. Oils are his favorite medium.
Painting since childhood, he continuously refines his skills with private lessons and by participating in
painting workshops. Wheeler travels to Italy and France to paint, and his paintings reflect his many
interests. He currently exhibits his work at the Galveston Art League Gallery in Galveston and Rivers
Edge Gallery in Kerrville.
Wheeler’s workshop is offered as part of the nonprofit Galveston Art League’s mission to advance visual
arts and art education in the county and beyond. The Art League counts on tax-deductible membership
fees and contributions, gallery sales, and an annual gala for support. Founded in 1914, the league is run
entirely by volunteers and has never had a salaried staff member. To join or learn more, please visit
