In case you missed it, a story about Learning Through Photography at Moore aired last night on NBC10 Philadelphia as part of their Education Nation series. Aditi Roy spent a few days at William Cramp Elementary School in Kensington talking with students, 5th grade teacher Jaime Rowlyk and Liz Gilly, Lead Coordinator of the LTP program at Moore about the project, now in its second year at the school.

This past October I had the wonderful opportunity to meet Lillian Dunn of Apiary Magazine during a workshop with the Philadelphia Writing Project at Penn.
Apiary Magazine is a FREE, curated literary magazine released twice a year in print and online that includes a wide variety of writing and visual art from across Philadelphia. It is suitable for ages 13 and up AND can include writing and visual arts by students 13 and up! With that said…
ATTENTION Learning Through Photography at Moore educators! Be sure to favorite this website and keep up with their submission deadlines. Apiary is a wonderful opportunity for your LTP students to showcase the work, both visual and written, that is happening in your classrooms!
Visit the APIARY Magazine submission page for more information. You will find a section for Youth Submissions with important details and guidelines. Good luck!
The National Art Education Association (NAEA) website offers a wealth of information about learning, community, news, advocacy and research in the field of art education.
Today I found a great link to articles discussing the importance of art education. They discuss not only the positive impact of art on school climate and overall students achievement, but also remind us of the importance of art on its own merit as a creative outlet and source of visual literacy.
The articles can be found in NAEA’s website section Research & Knowledge under the title 10 Salient Studies on the Arts in Education.
I just got back from a wonderful meeting at the Academy in Manayunk (AIM) about starting a Learning Through Photography program at their school. I am thrilled to say that the school will round out our 10 schools for the 2011-12 academic year; I can’t wait to get to work!
