MV teacher using TV project to promote art


Making art fun: Mt. Vernon art teacher Nate Heck has been working hard to make sure his educational art show, Artrageous with Nate, finds its way to the airwaves and into homes. Heck is pictured here in episode 2 about glass blowing and sculptures that centers on glass art and famous sculptor Dale Chihuly.

MT. COMFORT — Artrageous with Nate, a burgeoning television project created and led by Mt. Vernon art teacher Nate Heck, is moving forward in its quest to make learning about art fun and interesting for kids.

Heck has joined Kickstarter, a website that will help the project obtain donations until Tuesday, Feb. 19. The fundraising goal is $15,000, which will help create new episodes of the show.

“I feel like we are just so close now. I am extremely excited to see where we go this year.”

Heck has partnered with WFYI in Indianapolis, which is assisting in grantwriting efforts and getting the episodes aired on PBS.
