Mr. McDaniel

Hello, Welcome to Art I at Wagner HS.

I am Mr. McDaniel and I am honored to be a part of the Fine Arts department at Wagner High School as one of its Art I teachers.

I am a 'product' of, taught in, and have lived, in this District for quite awhile.


Some of my background experience includes:

A former US Army Captain and then Corporate Guy. Background in Architecture, Construction, and Landscaping.

Taught Elementary, Middle, High School, and Early College with 6 certifications.

Worked at a College as a Master Advisor, and later, Coordinator of Risk Management.


I mention these, because in every field, a deciding factor for success I attribute to 'Art/Creative Thinking'. If not artistic ability or skills themselves, it was Creative Thinking that was key to solving problems.

This will likely be the same for our students if they are open to learning and putting in the time and work to develop their own creative minds.

I enjoy creating art in all types of mediums: Pencil drawings, Prismacolor Pencils, Woodwork, Sculpture, Architecture models, and many more. The idea is for us to snowball, build up, and touch on as many mediums as possible, and... make some discoveries.


Educational Background:

Bachelor of Science in Architecture, Prairie View A&M University
Master of Arts in Communication Arts, University of the Incarnate Word
Master of Fine Arts in Illustration (24CH), Academy of Art University
Associates of Arts in Game Design (12CH), Alamo Colleges District

Thank you for your trust and look forward to a great year.
