Where creativity is endless!!!

            I teach Gifted Art, AP Studio Art, and Visual Art II. We build upon the foundations and fundamental elements of art, while developing skills using a variety of techniques and medias. My students will learn about drawing, painting, 2D design, and 3D art while incorporating art history of past and present artists. I hope to inspire all my students to continue their love and appreciation of art for years to come.

BFA from The University of Memphis, 2009

Masters in Education from ASU, 2018


My name is Whitney Lantrip. I am the Gifted, AP, and Visual Arts II teacher at Center Hill High School.  I am very excited to be a part of such an amazing team of teachers and enthusiastic student body. I am also the lead Junior class sponsor this year along with sponsoring the Art Society.

I graduated from The University of Memphis in 2009 with a BA in Fine Arts. I received my Master's degree at ASU, in Gifted Education in 2018. As a former special education teacher, I have always had a love for teaching students with special needs and this has translated into my passion for teaching gifted artists. I am an advocate for both public schools and art education. I feel we need to better fund our future and provide the support needed for creativity and artistic growth in our schools and community.

 I live in Coldwater, MS along with my husband, daughter, and our two dogs. We enjoy spending time with our family, friends, and attending church at Life Fellowship Southaven. My goal as a teacher is to grow my students each day by applying knowledge and motivating them to continue their learning and creativity throughout life. I look forward to teaching this school year and if you ever need to contact me please email me at
