Visual Arts Specialist

Welcome to Northrop's Visual Arts Department!

In case we have not met, let me introduce myself!  My name is Mary Vetter, and I teach ART to all Northrop student/artists, Grades K-5.  I have had the priviledge of teaching in this building for many years.  Although I am not quite as old as the building itself, I was a part of the original Ericsson Staff.  My entire teaching career has been devoted to the Minneapolis Public School District. I have taught Art at all grade levels, K-12, for almost 30 years. 

I hold both a bachleor's and master's degree in education.  

Originally from Madison, Wisconsin, I moved to Minnesota while my husband competed his studies at the University of Minnesota  We have two adult children, currently both college students. Our home is complete and "well guarded" by one extremely rambunctous welsh terrier. (A whole lot of attitude on 4 legs!)

I truly enjoy teaching art to children.  I consider myself  "young at heart" which keeps me motivated to share my  love for art with your children.  I am fortunate to be able to provide all Northrop students with the opportunity to express themselves visually.  I am in awe of what your children communicate through their artwork!  

Thank you for support!


Warm regards,

Mary Vetter
