Worcester Prep Teacher Chosen to Present at National Art Education Convention
Tittermary will co-present with art teacher Jennifer Moore, from the Darlington School in Georgia, and museum educator Justina Yee, from the National Gallery of Art. This presentation is one of 784 sessions selected from a record number of 2,263 applications to participate in the annual convention.
Their lecture will be focused on a project inspired by the National Gallery’s special exhibit, “Stuart Davis: In Full Swing.” The students at WPS have been using technology to communicate with the National Gallery and students from the collaborating schools.
WPS students had the opportunity to collaborate with the Darlington school students via FaceTime, to help the students study Davis more in-depth. The students were then able to emulate Davis’ style as they created their own works of art and exchanged pieces between their sister schools.
Diane Brown, marketing and public relations associate for WPS, said this is a prestigious honor for all of Worcester Prep Schools.
Last March at the 2016 NAEA Convention in Chicago, Tittermary, along with co-presenters Moore and Yee, presented a lecture in a session titled “Leading From Multiple Viewpoints: Integrating Studio, Art History, and Museum Best Practices.”
The NAEA Convention is the world’s largest art education convention to showcase leadership, professional contribution, advancing research and practice in visual arts education.
