Talented NRHS Alum Visit


Aleksa Wilk, 2017 NRHS Graduate visited the AR-8 classroom this past Tuesday. I put her on the spot to share her beautiful landscape and architectural paintings during D block Foundations of Art. Many students in Foundations of Art may not be able to foresee their potential so seeing a person who was once in their shoes is a wonderful opportunity.

Since graduating, Aleksa has continued to blossom as an artist as she has completed many commission pieces.

Check out her artwork here.

Final Stamp on Artwork

All of my students recently created and decided upon their artist’s signature- the final marks that will be placed on any and all art they create this year.

Some meticulous or messy, others spontaneous or calculated- all of which invite you into the artist’s world. Check out these marks in the Main Street exhibition spaces.
