Growing Pains : Art Education Thesis Exhibition Opening Reception

Thursday, December 10, 2015, 5-8pm
301 Gallery, 301 Cabot Street, Beverly

Montserrat College of Art’s Art Education Program and Practicum students are pleased to present the artworks of their students in this annual celebration of their Pre-K–12 Initial Licensure requirements. 

Growing Pains: An Art Education Thesis Exhibition, offers a glimpse into the time practicum students of the Art Education degree program have spent teaching and supporting youth in public school systems.

The exhibition features works on paper and mixed, traditional and digital media, in two and three dimensions, representing a selection of visual arts projects produced in the context of art classes assisted or taught by Practicum students Kayla Cochran (BFA Painting, 2015), Deanna Jacome (BFA Book Arts, 2015) and Taylor Kurmis (BFA Book Arts, 2015).
The Practicum students are showcasing the artwork created by their students across elementary, middle and high school. Schools represented are Malcolm L. Bell Elementary School in Marblehead, Masconomet Regional Middle School in Boxford, and Revere High School.

The work featured in this exhibition is an intimate look at the time Practicum students have spent educating and supporting youth in public school systems while completing their Pre-K–12 Initial Licensure requirements. The practicum internship consists of 300 hours of classroom experience usually completed in the Fall semester from September to December. Students enrolled in the program work with students in visual arts classes in a school of their choice, under the professional guidance of their Supervising Practitioner. We are honored to have three local art teachers supporting our students as Supervising Practitioners: Tammy Picone Nohelty of Malcolm L. Bell School, Ursina Amsler of Masconomet Regional Middle School and Meghan Allen of Revere High School.

A ceremony for the presentation of Certificates of Completion to the Practicum students will be held at the Opening Reception taking place on Thursday December 10th, from 5-8pm at 301 Gallery, 301 Cabot Street in Beverly, MA

Friends and family, colleagues, teacher, school students and their parents are all invited. Refreshments will be served.
