Instructor: Stephani Thomas
Young artists in the Discover Art class combine skills in drawing and painting with new discoveries in a variety of arts media and arts processes – monoprints, linocuts, photography, papers, fabrics, metal and more. Students will enhance skills, build talent, inspire the creation of unique works of art, and enjoy opportunities to work with a variety of art materials.
All of our students explore the Michener galleries weekly, and use works in the exhibitions as take-off points for their own art making. They also work from photographs, observation, and imagination, and glean inspiration from famous artists throughout history.
Michener classes keep Art at the Heart of Education with individualized attention, small classes, frequent gallery tours, and master teachers as hallmarks of the exceptional arts programs. Through exposure to a variety of art forms and art materials, all courses encourage the development of new skills and build confidence in creative expression. The Michener’s permanent collections balanced with changing exhibitions provide ongoing opportunities for looking at and learning about a variety of art forms in new ways. Student work is exhibited in the Education Gallery throughout the year.
Faculty member Stephani Thomas holds a BS in Art Education from Millersville University an MS in Art Education from Arcadia University. She is a National Board Certified Art Teacher and was the Bucks County Teacher of the Year in 2015. She has been with the Michener since 1999. One parent noted, “Stephani is a rare teacher who gives endless time and attention to cultivating every child’s interests in and gifts for art.”
