The Last Four Years

July 2, 2022
No items found.

The last four years I have been working with other Pennsylvania Rostered Artists from northeastern Pa in a grant received by Pearl Schaeffer of Philadelphia.  The in depth studies purpose was to show how various forms of art enhances learning.  Our study began with the Scranton school district and then shifted to Hazelton.  The findings will potentially be a model for schools across the nation.  I had the pleasure of working with second and third graders and their wonderful teachers.  We did all sorts of neat projects finding ways to implement math to art that came naturally.  Working with the math teachers the kids were learning without knowing it!  Catherine Cullen was our 'coach' and helped us manage many hurdles when covid hit and she also taught us how to go about this project showing something which has never been seen before.  I am looking forward to seeing the final 'report'.
