North Platte High School | Art
My name is Joy Petersen, and I am one of the art teachers at NPHS. I am originally from North Platte, and graduated from North Platte High School in 2008. I went to Mid-Plains Community College and Hastings College and earned my K-12 Art Ed. degree. I began teaching at NPHS in 2014, after teaching one year in Hershey, NE. I also sponsor Art Club.
I love teaching high school students and sharing my love of art! In my free time, I like to paint, exercise, cook, and lots more. My boyfriend and I enjoy working on our house and going on trips together.
I teach Art I, Art II, Drawing, Painting I, Painting II, and Sculpture. Our department is fortunate to be able to offer such a wide variety of mediums for students. The mission at NPHS is to ensure that students acquire the knowledge and skills that will prepare them for post-secondary education and entry into the workplace. We believe having an appreciation of art and basic art skills are important in helping create well-rounded and open-minded adults.
