Welcome to Art at W.B. Wicker!
My name is Linda Collura and I am the art teacher at W.B. Wicker APlus STEAM Elementary School
A little bit about me:
I have a BFA from SUNY College of Art & Design, a Graduate Level Teacher Cetification (K-6) from Rider University and a Masters in Art Education from East Carolina University. I really do love to teach art and want your child to experience all the arts has to offer, so I try to incorporate lots of different techniques into the art room, including painting, printmaking, mixed media sculpture, clay, and drawing. I believe all students are unique and can be successful when given the tools, resources, and the ability to learn and grow.
Some expectations we follow in the art room:
R- Respect... we come into the room quietly and wait for directions.
O- Ownership... we use an appropriate voice level. We use our time, materials and tools wisely and to the best of our ability.
A- Acceptance... we turn our mistakes into a learning opportunity, ask questions, help others and collaborate to solve problems, plan, design and create.
R- Responsibility...we help each other clean up before it's time to go, put materials away, and line up quietly.
