Hello, I’m Mr. Pedlow. I currently teacher Creative Photography 1 and 2, and AP 2d Digital Photography. My classes are the crossover between fine arts and technology . The students will learn proper camera usage and the process of untouching and creation in Photoshop.

How’s it going everybody! My name is Newsome and I am the Ceramics/Sculpture Instructor at Oak Ridge High School. I graduated from North Carolina School of the Arts in 2007 and have been teaching now for 8 years. Students in my class go through a variety of sculpture and artistically related forms of problem solving to build their creativity and imagination. In Ceramics 1 we cover the basics of the art form and the skills that are needed to construct simple 3-dimensional projects. In ceramics 2 and 3 we expand on that knowledge and the projects grow in size as well as utilizing the potters wheel. Looking forward to a great year; Pioneers Lead the Way!

Hello! I am Ronald Godwin and I am the 2-D Art 1, 2-D Art 2 and Advanced Placement Drawing teacher at Oak Ridge High School. I have been teaching for close to 10 years. I attended the University of Central Florida from 2007-2009 majoring in Art Education. I am looking forward to working with the students at Oak Ridge and watching them explore and grow over the years. Students will experience a variety of projects and activities that are not just based on artistic skill. The courses will expand upon their knowledge of art and will touch on techniques, history, and much more. I would like to thank you in advance for your support and hope for a fun and creative school year.

Hello everyone, my name is Ms. Nyhagen (you can call me "Ms. N") and I teach 2D Art 1, 3D Art 1, and 3D Art 2 here at Oak Ridge High School.  I have been teaching since 2011, and I love helping students develop their artstic skills.  I received my undergraduate degree in Art Education and Art History from the University of Vermont in 2011.  I was awarded my master's degree in Art Education from the University of Florida in 2020.  In our classes this year, we will look at studio art from historic and contemporary perspectives.  We will experiment with a variety of different media including drawing, paint, plaster, cardboad, fabric and found materials...and lots more.  My students will develop their artistic skills but also their studio habits where they will become better at collaborating, communicating, time management, and creative thinking.  I look forward to working with you and thank you for your suport of the fine arts at Oak Ridge High School.
