Welcome to Mr. Henke's K-12 Art Classroom!

Hello, I am Mr. Henke, the Kindergarten through 12th grade visual arts teacher. I have been teaching art at Lanesville Community Schools for 28 years. The art program is focused on art production, art history, art aesthetics and art criticism and supported by both state and national visual art standards. I believe that all students can learn to create art, and respond to art. My favorite quote is "Do small things with great love" from Mother Theresa. Small things will build into amazing things. Amazing thing are happening in the art room.
