Davenport Schools Remember an Art Legend: Norm Pagels
The North Art Department held an event during their Art Club to remember past art teacher, Norm Pagels. Norm was an art teacher at both Davenport West and Davenport North for 30 years. Following retirement, he subbed at Kimberly Center and Mid-City High. Norm was a member of First Presbyterian Church, Riverssance, Mid Coast Art, NEA, Art Association of Iowa, and Men’s Teacher’s Club. He passed away on December 18, 2018. The art department opened up the event for airbrushing and students came from North, West and United Township High School. Norm was the one responsible for bringing airbrushing to North over 30 years ago that is still being used today. Donations from his passing went out to the North and West Art Departments. He inspired many students in his life, including many current artists and art teachers in our community. You will not be forgotten Norm. Thank you for all that you have done for this community!
