Since graduating from Tyler's MEd in Art Education program in 2012, Marie Elcin has taught as an elementary school art teacher, an adjunct professor and student teacher supervisor at Saint Joseph's University, and currently works as the middle school art teacher for Christopher Columbus Charter School. Marie has been welcoming undergraduate Art Education interns in her classroom for the past 4 years, and loves sharing her teaching practice with pre-service teachers. In addition to her full-time teaching position, Marie also works as a teaching artist at Fleisher Art Memorial, where she teaches color theory, basic design, and fibers to adults in the evenings, and screen-printing for teens on Saturdays.
Marie also continues to maintain her studio practice in fibers and printmaking, and has exhibited in shows at Holy Family University, Wayfarers Gallery in Brooklyn, and B Square Gallery. Part of her ongoing artistic practice involves community art projects - Marie completed a major collaborative fiber piece with the congregation of the Philadelphia Episcopal Cathedral, and was selected as a finalist for the PFCU Fishtown Mural Project with Mural Arts Program in 2015. She also participated in an international peace project called "In a War Someone Has to Die", and connected with the original curator in Denmark to bring the project to Philadelphia.
