Artsonia....the world's largest kids' art museum!


Theresa Hoag

Mrs. Hoag is the Art Department Chair.  She teaches Art Foundations and Pottery and Sculpture and Advanced Pottery and Sculpture this year.  She has taught for fourteen years at Millard South.  “I chose teaching Art as my career because I feel that I can impact the world positively by working with students.  I also get to share my enthusiasm for something that has improved my life and for which without I would've been lost as a teenager”.  She earned her undergraduate degree from UNO in 2002 and a Masters in Curriculum and Technology from Peru State College in 2008.  I am continuing courses at The University of Nebraska Kearney online cohort program.

Meta E. Felt
Ms. Felt teaches Painting, Color and Design, and Art Foundations.  She is a native of Nebraska and attended the University of Nebraska-Lincoln where she earned degrees in Psychology, Art, and Education.  Ms. Felt began teaching art in Millard in January of 2000 after working as a retail manager.  In 2010, she completed her MA in Secondary Education and Art.  Her spare time is filled with a very busy preschooler and as much outdoor time as she can get.

Lori Wegener 

Ms. Wegener teaches Art Foundations, Drawing, Advanced Drawing, Commercial Graphic Design and Art History.  She has taught art in public and private schools in NYC, Lincoln and Omaha for fifteen years.  Throughout the school year, she also teaches art for the Joslyn Art Museum.  Ms. Wegener is an exhibiting artist (a drawer, painter and printmaker), creative writer and published illustrator.  She received a B.A. in Studio Art from Wellesley College in Wellesley, MA, a M.S. in Art and Design Education from Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, NY, and a M.F.A. in Drawing and Painting from University of Nebraska-Lincoln in Lincoln, NE.  Besides creating and exhibiting her own art, she also loves to learn new skills and take art classes, read, travel, hike, bike and spend time outdoors.

Her passion for art has taken her all over the United States and to other parts of the world, in her exploration of different cultures, histories, languages and landscapes.  It is her aim to inspire students to make connections beyond the classroom and to think independently.  She believes that a positive and dynamic interaction with students as well as staff is also important.  “I bring my experiences and enthusiasm into the workplace and am open to what others offer, in order to build a comfortable, creative environment in which everyone succeeds.”  She is very excited for her third year at Millard South!
