Welcome to the
NGRHS Art Room
Thank you to all students, staff, and community for an amazing and
years at NGRHS. The art work that students produced will continue
to inspire me!
I am retired now, after teaching since 1978. I will now work on
more of my own art. The email for the school should still work, if
students would like to write and let me know about art projects they are working on.
I will put up the last of the art show photographs
sometime this summer. Check out the new "Train Murals"
painted by Art 10. They are hanging at the New
Germany Small Engine Repair.
Please contact the new art teacher, Ms. Kelly Barker, with any
questions about the art courses. New adventures ahead!
Art in school is about making powerful images about ideas and
feelings and issues. We learn a lot of techniques and use many
different media. Students create personal work and they create
work based on some directed themes. Art shows are important.
The first audience is, of course, the artist. The next audience is
the public - friends, family, and community. There are at
least four major shows a year, with over 500 works on display at each
show! Really amazing stuff.
Here are some hints about getting around the NGHRS Art Room website.

I have added a link to some of my

paintings) and in my studio.

These paintings were done by Art 10 in the spring of 2016. The
scenes were from historical photographs of New Germany and the old train

art works are on display at the shop.
