Hello students and parents/gaurdians. Welcome to the Rogers Art Studio Website.
This is a picture of me, taking a picture of a Frog Fish... see that picture here
Frog Fish are camouflage ambush predators, so it's hard to see it blended into its surroundings.
Can you see it?
Students can check out the links to the left. There are some good starting places for Just Art Making (JAMin)!
Parents can continue to read the bio here and the letter below.
Mr. Nicholson Short Biography
I was born and raised in Colorado Springs, Colorado. D11 Alumni, went to Stratton Elem, North Middle, and Palmer High School.
I moved to Hawaii after I Graduated High School. I was accepted to attend the University of Hawaii at Manoa where I studied Fine Art, Japanese Language, and Marine Science. I continued to work and live in Hawaii for a total of 10 years. I met my wife while scuba diving. We moved back to Colorado Springs in 2015. And we have a son, Atlas.
