Annie Painter is the main art teacher here at Black Butte School. She is the best, she has been here twice this year, the first time she was here she taught us block art. We printed different shapes and shades with one block. And the second time she let us make windows inspired by Friedensreich Hundertwasser.
We won’t be able to see her as much as last year, sadly she is in the process of moving to Portland. She has been a teacher for a long time, she was actually my mom’s principal at Powell Valley grade school in Gresham. Then she wanted to teach at her own studio. Lucky for her she has the last name Painter.
I have known Annie since I was 8 and now I’m almost 11. I have learned so much from her. She loves teaching new techniques. “Annie is inspiring and fun,” said Talon and Weston. “We will miss you so much Annie, see you soon and safe travels” says the entire school.
