Welcome to my Classroom Website

    I have taught at Blaine High School for over 18 years.  I am a professional working artist with a studio in my home.  I work part time at BHS in the morning.  I teach Painting 1,2,3, Drawing 1, Ceramics 1 and I team teach Advanced Placement Art Studio (AP Art) with Mrs Schenk. 
    I have worked in many art careers.  I was the director of Banfill Locke Center for the Arts in Fridley, MN.  I have been a freelance commercial artist, I created the North Artist Studio Crawl and I enter painting exhibitions and plein air (painting on location) contests across the country. I have won numerous awards for my paintings.  You can check out my work on my web site at patundis.com. Teaching art at Blaine High School is my favorite art job.  I love teaching young people how to paint.  What I really teach is, " seeing and focused practice." I  break it down into small steps and teach you to use thoughtful practice and bam! You will be able paint!
    In the past few years I have been traveling the world.  I have been to the Netherlands, Germany, Austria, Hungary, Bulgaria, Serbia, Croatia, Romania, Costa Rica, St Thomas, Puerto Rico, Virgin Islands, Grand Turks, Thailand and in 2012 I took BHS students to Italy.  In 2016 we are taking another group to Italy for an art history/ art making tour. 
    Thank you for supporting your student's education! I am excited to work with your child and watch their growth. Together we can help your child achieve success!
