Welcome to the Omaha North High Magnet School Art Department.

We boost an award-winning department with award-winning students. We offer five levels of pottery, including Advanced Placement Studio Design, two levels of Applied Design and four levels of Art.  Our students are on the potter's wheels from day one! We have twenty three potter's wheels, enough for each student in the class!

Our students compete in many competitions throughout the metro area and they are bringing home the gold!  Check out the artwork throughout the building and see what our students can do!



Art Purchase Award

The North High Art Purchase Award was established during the 1979-1980 school year. This award honors an outstanding art student from our art department. Artwork is selected by the art staff, purchased and becomes part of North High’s permanent collection each year. The works are on display in public areas in the building and in the library/media center.
