LHS Art

Welcome to my web page! My name is Pam Smith, but most know me as "Miss Pam". Most of you already know that my two passions in life are Art and Travel, but those two things are only beautiful and perfect when I share them with family, friends, and students! I am excited to be back at Luverne High School for a third year!  I have taught art to all ages and will begin my 38th year of teaching this year. My goal is to introduce art to as many students as possible and to continue the art growth for those students that I have already taught. I believe that through the arts students are provided a higher quality of human experience throughout their lifetime.
