Welcome to the RHS Visual Arts Department!

Sometimes when people see my wife and I together, the movie Beauty and the Beast comes to their mind.... I just really don't understand how they could possibly imagine my wife looking like the Beast though........ Smile.. & Have a great day!
 Hello! My name is Carl Halverson and I have been teaching here at Royalton High School for more than three decades. The students here are the main reason that I still enjoy what I do along with the work that we produce in the art department. My wife Janet and I have been married for thirty three years and have been blessed with six fantastic children. We enjoy camping, hunting, fishing, playing music, and following Minnesota's sports teams. You can reach me at the school's email or by phone at the high school at extension 4232. Last year in English Class, the sixth grade were asked to make a "Thank You" card for their favorite teacher/class in the middle school. I remember going to the mailboxes and seeing a few teachers who were looking at these cards. One teacher said, "I got two!" while another said "I got three Thank You's!" I walked up to my mailbox, and was kind of disappointed to see that my mailbox was empty. Then, I looked on the ledge, and their was a shoebox with my name on it. In that box were 38 Thank You cards from different sixth grade students. The next few days I got a few more here and there. It made me feel so good knowing that, like one card said, "I kind of suck at art. But you made it fun. I learned a lot. Art is my favorite class now."  Believe it or not, that card came from the son of a school district employee who found it to be as humorous as I did that his son had a new favorite subject in school. Thanks for checking out the art department and have a great day!

The art department continues to be a fantastic place to be . Just know this...... RHS continues to dominate in the visual arts area like no other small school . If you doubt it, I personally am inviting you to come in and view the rooms, their art work, and most of all, the most fantastic group of young people imaginable. You will leave this department amazed. Thanks for the opportunity to work with your children. They Rock!
