Author: Emily Furlong

Lourdes Monje, Bachelor of Science in Architecture '17, was recently profiled and interviewed by American Institute of Architecture Students. Monje was featured in a weekly email discussing studio culture. Some highlights include: Describe your studio culture: "My studio culture is diverse and open in the sense that classmates feel comfortable enough to critique each other's work. What advice would you give a high school student about studio? "A high school student should understand that studio at my university is intense, a bit stressful, and awesome all at the same time. I love studio because...."It allows me to interact with a diverse range of like-minded people while working on becoming the kind of designer I am meant to be."

Art Education Student Exhibition

Author: Kylie Doyle

People from all walks of life fill Stella Elkins Tyler Gallery within the Tyler School of Art. The walls are adorned with colorful pieces of artwork from many different schools in Philadelphia. The student teachers of Tyler’s Art Education program stand in front of each area dedicated to the school that they concluded their internships at, pride evident on every face as their students and families come through to admire the artworks. The art education program is monitored carefully by a great deal of dedicated faculty members, including  Lisa Kay, Wendy Osterweil, and  Pepón Osorio (of the community arts department). Though the student teachers spend their time educating their young pupils, in turn their students educate them and prove that there is always something new to learn. The profession of teaching is a noble one indeed, and seeing in person the effects that their instruction can have on their students is second to none. Read More

"Artists for Haiti" to Hold Charity Fundraiser

Author: Kayla Cropper

In 2011, the Penn State Project Haiti chapter approached Temple University to start an organization that would work to fund a new orphanage in Petite Riviere de Artibonite, Haiti. Project Haiti Temple University was created and began holding movie nights, bake sales, and clothing drives to raise money for the Saint Francis Xavier Orphanage. In 2012, Meredith McDevitt began the fundraiser "Artists for Haiti" in hopes that the Tyler community would come together to raise funds for the orphanage. "I have always thought that one of the greatest ways to give back to those in need is to use your own personal talents in a collaborative effort," McDevitt said. "This fundraiser enables the artists of Tyler to create or donate their work for charity." The primary goal of the organization is to provide food, shelter, education, and healthcare for the children in the orphanage. Read More
