Lucas Martell

I grew up in Oak Cliff in a very family-oriented home. I wasn't able to move away from home immediately after high school, but that wasn't something I wanted to do anyway.

When I attended Mountain View 12 years ago, I was encouraged, motivated, and inspired by my instructors and mentors. As a student, I learned a lot from the dedication of the instructors; their enthusiasm about the subjects they taught inspired me to continue my pursuit of higher education.

After leaving Mountain View, I earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of North Texas, then a Master of Fine Arts from the University of Dallas. In 2012, during completion of my master's, my worldview expanded as I began teaching fine art at Mountain View and got the opportunity to travel abroad. That shaped me into the person, and the artist I am today.

Today I am proud to be a part of the Mountain View family as an adjunct instructor, while I continue creating my artwork as a professional artist. I share the same encouragement, motivations and values with my students that I received as a student.​
