Art - Mr. Mike Pflaum
2023-2024 will be my 17th year at St. Vincent de Paul. I received my BFA from Creighton University with an empahsis in painting and drawing and my MaEd in 2005. I am grateful to have the privilege to work with over 800 children each week at St. Vincent de Paul School. I am inspired by the students' originality in using multiple art mediums and tools on a daily basis. It is a joy to see them experience new techniques and projects while learning how art is an important part of their lives every day. I hope that they take from their classes a better understanding and appreciation of the arts so they can enrich not only themselves but also the people they will encounter in the future.
All students in grades K-8 receive art instruction each week. Each student will explore art through art history and aesthetics using many mediums including pencils, pastels, painting, pottery, weaving, and digital art. Artwork is continually displayed throughout the school plus students also have the opportunity to participate in contests and contribute art projects to the annual SPREE auction. Teacher Associates from each grade support Mr. Pflaum's art classes when needed. The student art gallery will be updated throughout the year and accompanied by project descriptions.
