OSCEOLA Middle and High School Art
Derek J. Carlson
Osceola School District
My name is Mr. Derek J. Carlson and welcome to my website. I have been teaching art a little over two decades in the Osceola Middle School and High School and every year students offer me new talent and creativity. My main philosophy for students in my classroom is that everyone has artistic potential. All you need is the right attitude and a little perseverance to create good art.
My schooling consists of a B.A. in studio art from St. Olaf College and a M.A. in art education from the University of Minnesota. As well as teaching art I am also a practicing artist with a main focus on oil and acrylic painting.
