Daphne Smallwood, an ME.D in Art Education student at Tyler School of Art, has been selected to be a part of two highly competitive Artist-in-Residence programs: the Imagenes y Palabras and the Warm Heart Art residencies. Imagenes y Palabras is a small cultural organization in Spain that offers workshops, artist stays and classes throughout the year. The Warm Heart Art residency is located in Arusha, Tanzania, and Daphne will exhibit artwork that she has created during her residency there with other international artists. Daphne believes these residency experiences will help to expand her art practice and introduce her to artists from all over the world, as well as positively influence her practice as an art educator.

Recent Tyler alum Jamie Forslund (M.Ed. '15) presented at the 2016 National Art Education Association Conference in Chicago, IL! This presentation discussed her current research conducted in Philadelphia area public high schools. Forslund observed and interviewed art teachers and high school English Language Learner students in order to better understand the needs of ELL students, the needs of art teachers, and how both parties can be better served. The information gleaned from the study helped attendees gain perspective on how ELL students fit into the culture of a high school art classroom and learn how to provide scaffolding to contribute to the teaching skills needed to address this growing and vital population.
