Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Cynthia Urban

This is my second year at Forbes Middle School. Go Falcons!

I taught high school art and landscape design classes at Austin Community College for many years but my heart is as your child's visual art teacher here at Forbes Middle School! Did you know that middle school involvement in the arts is associated with gains in math, reading, cognitive ability, critical thinking and verbal skills?

Although I was born in Texas, I was raised in Brooklyn, New York. I attended Brooklyn Technical High School, a prestigious high school that specializes in science, technology, engineering and mathematics. While in high school, I developed a passion for architecture and became fascinated with design theory. I majored in Studio Art and minored in Architecture at The City College of New York. After college, I moved back to Texas and met my husband Tim, a Professional Landscape Architect, while attending graduate school at Texas A&M University in College Station. While at A&M, I enjoyed my tenure as a teaching assistant in Florence, Italy for the College of Architecture's Study Abroad Program. I have lived in Georgetown since 2001 and all three of my children attend school in Georgetown ISD. 

While not in school, my favorite thing to do is enjoy being at a beach under an umbrella with a good book. I also like HGTV, cooking, gardening, tending to my chickens and of course - making art!
