Instructor: Maria Wible
Students entering grades 5 through 9 in fall 2018 are invited to register for this class.
Develop new drawing skills while working from photographs, Michener exhibitions, still life objects, observation, and imagination. Explore both wet and dry media while creating a series of original black and white and color works of art using pen and ink, chalk pastels, oil pastels, watercolors, pencils, and charcoal.
The Michener Art Museum offers the only art classes in Bucks County where learners of all ages experience Museum exhibitions as an ongoing part of their arts education. Discussions and experiences in the galleries and sculpture garden inspire students to create original works of art in response to what they see. Individualized attention, small classes, and master teachers are hallmarks of exceptional programs that combine learning new skills with opportunities for creative expression and the development of a personal style. Students work in an environment rooted in inspired and supportive instruction, meaningful gallery experiences, personal observation, and imagination. Student work is exhibited in the Education Gallery throughout the year. All art classes at the Michener keep art at the heart of education.
Faculty member Maria Wible has a Bachelor of Fine Arts and a Bachelor of Arts in Art History from Penn State University. She earned her Master’s Degree in Art Education from University of the Arts in Philadelphia. She is currently the elementary art teacher at First Philadelphia Preparatory Charter School. One parent noted, “We found the quality of instruction in Maria’s class to be exceptional. My daughter loved the pace of the class, the specificity of instruction, and the joyful classroom atmosphere.”
