Welcome to the art room students and parents.  The art room itself is number 132 in the middle school wing of the main building.  My phone number is:  503-283-5197 x132. Please feel free to leave me a message if you have any questions, concerns or ideas.  You can also reach me via e-mail:  I am most happy to dialogue with you.

I am always collecting things for the art room including:  small boxes, adhesives, wire,  buttons, pencils, and erasers etc.  If you are cleaning out a closet or a drawer please remember your friendly Holy Redeemer art room!

Spring 2014:  We made beautiful items for our school auction themed "A Night in Paris"; we studied the gorgeous art of Kesha Bruce, Nick Bantock, and Romero Britto; and we are currently working on a special outdoor project for the garden.  Additionally, we studied line, pattern, color, shape, and facial proportions.  Middle school students each made a journal of the elements of design.  It has been a colorful and busy spring.  Thank you for supporting and encouraging your children in their artistic endeavors!  This year my first kindergarten art class graduates 8th grade, and I say goodbye to these talented and kind young men and women with a lump in my throat and a tear in my eye.  I have so much hope that they will continue to expand on their creativity throughout their high school years, and hopefully for the rest of their lives.

Holy Redeemer is blessed with a diverse population of extremely talented, energetic, and creative young people.  I want to thank you, parents, for loaning them to me for art class.  I am so appreciative of my opportunity to teach art to such eager young folk!
