Nick Kraft, 2004 graduate, returned to Oak Hills High School today as a teacher! Nick is an artist with Visionaries and Voices (V+V), a nonprofit that supports adult artists with disabilities through exhibitions, employment, and studio space. Nick is participating in the V+V Teaching Artist Program through which a selection of 3 to 4 artists learn how to teach art over the course of a 30 week period. Following the completion of the program, TAP artists are able to participate in the V+V outreach classes and provide visual art lessons to the public in and outside of schools.
Nick taught a lesson to Miss Kopf’s Painting and Mixed Media class. Students enjoyed the lesson and learning about Nick’s work. Nick did a fabulous job and as a bonus was happy to see and catch up with his former teacher Mrs. Mosher!
