Learn about our Lenten Artists Salon Series guest Visual Artist Lynda Coleman of Lynda Coleman’s Art From The Heart. 

Lynda Coleman is a native of Austin. She graduated from L.B.J. High School and attended the University of Texas at Austin, and Austin Community College.
For most of her life, Lynda has been doing positive work within the community.

She has been painting since the age of five, and has been exhibiting her artwork in the community from 1988 until the present.

Since 2001, hundreds of youth ages (3-17) throughout the City of Austin have been instructed and inspired through Lynda Coleman’s Art from the Heart Workshops. While facilitating these workshops, the theme is incorporated in the art project; to teach a life skill. Lynda also facilitates Empowerment Arts
& Crafts Workshops to adults, encouraging them to unleash their greatness in many areas of their lives.

While working for the City of Austin Parks & Recreation Department for seven years and Youth Advocate Programs, Inc. (YAP) for almost three years, Lynda became an Independent Contract Provider of Social Services for ten years. Those were several contracts through Austin Travis County Integral Care (ATCIG). The services included Advocacy, Case Management, Crisis Intervention & Support, Family & Individual Mentoring, Parent Coaching, Respite and Tutoring

Lynda currently works as a Mentor Artist with several other Professional Visual Artists in which they co-founded a partnership, Generational Artists Collective XYZ. This partnership was created to inspire and mentor Youth Artists ages (5-16), to express and to utilize all of their Creative Gifts. The Youth Artists are given opportunities to create and to sell their art in the community.

With her love of art and for the children of the community, Lynda has always used her gifts, talents and Entrepreneurial Spirit to create, collaborate and connect with Businesses, Churches, Groups, Ministries, Museums, Non-profits & Schools to host City Wide Events to uplift her community since 2003.
