My Students

We have the best student body in the state. They come from a small town, small community atmosphere where everyone knows everyone. This allows us to be more personable, and caring with everyone here. Our student population consists of over 50% free and reduced. Our students exceed expectations.

Our students are raised with core beliefs that enable them to be important people in our society.

Many people across the country talk about Midwest core values. The students here exemplify this.

My Project

My students have been painting landscapes with me for many years now and the biggest complaint from them, "The school paints don't work the same as your paints do." I have used these paints and they are high quality with a low price. I recommend them to other professionals.

The artistic needs of my students have advanced and it is time to advance the quality of paints with them.

They have done remarkable works of art using the school paints. I have learned what works and what doesn't work. Most times when I paint, I use my paints and allow some students to use my paints as well. This has become the way to advance them, only damaging my wallet a little. I would like more students to advance and not be held back due to lack of funds.
