Sunflower Mural at Holton Municipal Pool

This summer I had the opportunity to design and paint a mural at Holton Municipal Pool. Part of the plan was for this to be a community art project, so after I had painted some outlines, community members were invited to come participate in painting! The turnout was better than I ever expected with approximately 50 community members, many of them families with young children, coming out to help in just a few hours.  I went back to finish the painting over the next couple of weeks and was thankful for the help of some friends and family to get the big areas filled in. This is definitel ..read more

Holton Community Hospital Mural

When the Holton Community Hospital remodeled, the dining room lost their window. So when I was asked to paint a mural in that location, they wanted a Kansas landscape. I took a photo of a farm not too far from my home and that was the starting point. I added in a few more wildflowers for more color. I was able to complete the 8 x 13 foot mural in a week. The barn seems to be everyone's favorite detail of the mural! I hope that the hospital employees will be able to enjoy the painting for years to come and that it gives them a peaceful scene to look at when taking a break on a stressful ..read more

2022 Junior Duck Stamp- 7th grade
Adventures of an Art Teacher
by

I just wanted to take a minute and share some of my 7th graders’ artwork that was created for our Art of Conservation unit. We learn about conservation and duck stamps before students create artwork in their choice of media using observational drawing skills. It is a good confidence booster since we cover skills that are helpful for realistic drawing since we all know students at this age tend to lose interest if they have trouble translating what they see. I also use it as an opportunity to demonstrate multiple painting and drawing media that students can choose from. I can’t wait to share th ..read more
