JULIE (RAPELJE) ROHR

Instructor & Club Leader

 

Ms. Julie Rohr is both a homeschooling parent and a professional educator.  She has served students of all ages and skill levels in both live and online settings.  She has written curriculum and has presented on topics in local, national, and international forums.  Julie has taught for the past 20+ years in many areas of art and culture.  She knows there is more to enjoy in great art than just “The Last Supper.”  Ms. Rohr has personally developed a series of Art History courses that delights and engages students.  Her drawing classes have seen participants grow in leaps and bounds!  She enjoys helping young adults take the next step in attending college or working in their field.  The results of her time in class and clubs are confident, thoughtful, informed students who are ready to contribute to the culture around them with a biblical view of art and creative skills.  Ms. Rohr has presented locally and nationally on social etiquette and creative topics.  She is pleased to also facilitate a special club covering these subject for ladies only.

Both parents and students praise Julie Rohr as having a knack for presenting material in a way that makes it interesting to understand and absorb.  She is known for her enthusiasm and insight into the arts.  More than once, she has been proclaimed as “my favorite teacher.”   She has been known to discuss in class such diverse and curious things as art history cover-ups, faith-filled famous artists, DIY bacon roses, dirt collections, the existence of dragons, Ukrainian Easter eggs, and even unibrows.  Have you ever heard of a spontaneous virtual toga party?  Apparently, she has.

In her free time, Julie enjoys museum visits, travel, sailing, dancing, floral art, and good conversation.  She homeschools her youngest and enjoys every opportunity to work with eager students of all ages.  She hopes to serve as a catalyst for people, that they might see and create more good in the world. Perhaps you will spend some time with her this semester!

THANKS FOR BEING SUCH A GREAT TEACHER

I wanted to tell you, a little over a year ago I told [my daughter] that I wanted her to try an art history class - that she would only have to take one.  Three weeks into your first class, she told me emphatically, 'I want to take all four!'  Thanks for being such a great teacher.
