Richard Hight is a nationally recognized artist/speaker who uses the fine arts to help his audiences create strategies for change by turning good ideas into great results. He is on a mission to help students see the possibility of their potential and create new opportunities.

Richard's Virtual Art of Inspiration influences his audiences to use their imagination to discover their originality and celebrate their differences. As a masterful storyteller with a down to earth, Oklahoma warmth, and humorous style, he always connects with his audiences.

Richard’s presentation begins with the dramatic and exciting creation of a stunning illustration on a large canvas (each school can suggest what image will best serve their students - historical figures, patriotic images, school mascots and others, etc.). Students and teachers are WOW’ed by the combination of powerful illustration, spoken word, and music that transpires in a matter of moments. The artwork Richard creates then provides the foundation for his keynote presentation and live, online discussion. At the end of the virtual school assembly, your school receives in the mail the impressive creation to display and act as a reminder of the positive, empowering messages your students learned. He can customize a portion of your event to include Anti-Bullying, Character Building or reinforce the theme of your virtual school.

His work is also published in books and magazines. With many accomplishments to his name, Richard is most proud of being the father of two, sometimes well behaved, kids. He is committed to delivering an age-appropriate, relevant message to each and every audience from K - 12.

  • The Virtual Art of Inspiration with Richard Hight was really wonderful! My 500+students and staff really enjoyed the presentation and drawing created by the artist! I would definitely recommend the presentation to other schools. I think the message from the artist was clear and the artwork was incredible for the kids to see from start to finish.
