Thomas DeBoer

Elective Teacher

Thomas DeBoer is excited to be a teaching artist at Civic Theater for the first time this summer! During the school year, he teaches as a K-8 art teacher for Grand Rapids Public schools, and he earned his BFA in Drawing and BA in Art History from Aquinas College. While his career focuses on the visual arts, he finds joy and inspiration in music and theater. He’s looking forward to joining Civic this year to help spread the joy and craft of art-making through theater and set design.
