Art Literacy Teacher

Renée Miller

Renée's love of art started at a young age when she tried to make a paintbrush from the fur of her cat’s tail taped to a tinkertoy! She grew up and attended college in Pennsylvania, then moved to Oregon in 1980. Renée raised 3 sons while teaching in private and public schools, mostly the Tigard-Tualatin School District. She was trained in Art Literacy at the Portland Art Museum. When Renée retired from classroom teaching and moved to Devils Lake, she continued to work with children and art through “Let There Be Arts,” and “Community Arts Projects,” until finding the perfect place—NVS. Renée has been the Art Lit teacher here at NVS since 2015, and enjoys introducing the students to art, artists, and culture. She especially loves to see the uniqueness and creativity they bring to each project.
