Welcome to my Home Page 

 

I serve as the Art Department Chair at Anoka High School and I teach Drawing I, II, III, Computer Art, Video Art, AP Studio Art, and the Online AP Art History Course.

 
I am an ardent believer that visual literacy is a critical component for all students to be able to function and thrive in what is an increasingly visually oriented world. By taking visual arts courses students will be able to develop essential skills that will allow them to be able to develop proficiency in the following areas:
  • skills in using a variety of visual media
  • ability to be able to communicate effectively using a visual language
  • creative problem solving skills
  • development of a personal voice
  • an understanding of the larger world in which we live
  • the ability to find connections between all areas of learning
  • using technology to enhance one's creative thinking skills
