Manabu Takahashi

Adjunct Instructor

Hello! My name is Manabu Takahashi. My first name means “to learn” in Japanese. I am fortunate to carry on that name as I pursue our shared passion for art and art education!

I was first introduced to The Art of Education University (AOEU) by my fellow art teachers earlier in my career. They continue to inspire me through their journey with AOEU. I have joined the AOEU family as a content creator, subject matter expert, and now an instructor.

I was born in Nagoya, Japan, but spent the majority of my upbringing in Creve Coeur, MO. Now, I reside in Kansas City, MO, and when I am not teaching, I am eating BBQ, playing board games, or doodling for Inktober. During my undergraduate years, I played trumpet for Marching Mizzou, and I am currently teaching myself piano. If I am not doing any of the above activities, I am most likely visiting an art museum.
