About Me I am currently an Art Teacher at a high school in Philadelphia looking to extend my reach to private tutoring in the arts. I have taught for three years in the areas of Art Foundations, Advanced Art and Ceramics. I have experience with a wide range of media, both two-dimensional and three-dimensional.

I am also an accomplished artist who has been fortunate enough to exhibit my work and sell many pieces. I enjoy working one on one with students, guiding them not only in tricks and techniques, but also with creative aspects.

Ramblings of a 4th Year Teacher, Post #1: Art Extra Credit Corner

Since I am teaching Elementary (K-8) Art for the first time this year, I decided I should research suggestions for the Elementary Art Room. This is what I have come up with!

1. Art Extra Credit Corner, otherwise known as the free-time-student-entertainer area. I have decided to create this little haven in my room because from what I remember from student teaching, Elementary students will often finish on widely different time tables. This should help entertain those who are finished early, while also earning extra credit!

Art Extra Credit Cards: These cards can be found in the Extra Credit Card Box and contain drawing prompts. I was inspired for these prompts by checking out the Anti-Coloring Books by Susan Striker and got some wonderful middle school ideas at Miss Barbola’s wikispace. I also made a very specific directions sheet that hangs directly above the box. My favorite direction is “If you don’t know how to complete the card topic, return it and chose another one.” Hopefully my students will be reading that direction and will allow me to continue working with students who are still completing the project.

Art Extra Credit Chore List: I am cautiously optimistic about this one. My hopes are these Extra Credit Assignments will allow my antsy students to be moving around while constructively occupied. I’ll let you know how it goes!

Hello May.

Some different things are happening in our art-universe:

Most exciting is that we BOTH graduate on Mother’s day this year with our Bachelor’s of Art! That deserves a round of applause! :)

Next: Our friend, John Miller of Reeders PA is displaying his artwork at College Nannies and Tutors, located on Route 611 in Tannersville PA.  John and I had a fantastic time hanging all of his works. John specializes in Pointalism and focuses on nature in most of his works. For more information onJohn’s artwork, please contact him at jammam@ptd.net. Below are some samples of his work:
