Along with your application, you’ll need to send all of your official high school and college transcripts to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions at Temple University.

What we consider

Previous college academic history. This is the basis of our admissions decision, as it is most telling of the work you will demonstrate as a Temple student. Our average GPA for transfer admission is 3.1 with 15 or more attempted college-level credits. Remedial and developmental course work is not counted toward our 15-credit minimum. Architecture, Nursing and Health Information Management have higher GPA requirements.

If you are seeking a second bachelor’s degree, please note:

  • Nursing. the College of Liberal Arts and the College of Education do not grant admission to second-degree students.
  • The Fox School of Business does not grant admission to students who have already completed a first degree in a business-related field at a U.S. institution.
  • The College of Science and Technology (CST) requires students pursuing second degrees to submit a statement of goals. CST makes the final determination of admissibility. Students wanting to complete prerequisites toward professional programs should contact Continuing Studies .

High school performance. We require an official high school transcript for students who have completed fewer than 30 college credits. We may review your high school work as part of our admissions decision.

Essay. This is your opportunity to describe the reasons you are looking to transfer, explain any academic trends or tell us something that is not evident in your application.

Recommendations. Although not required for transfer students, we accept letters of recommendations.

Extracurricular activities. Tell us about what you do outside the classroom.

Standardized test scores : If you have at least 15 college credits, SAT/ACT scores are usually not required for transfer admission unless our Admissions Office requests them.

Transferring credits

There’s no limit to the number of credits we accept, but you must complete at least 45 of your last 60 credits at Temple in order to receive a Temple degree. Our Admissions Office will let you know which credits are acceptable through a mailed official credit evaluation after you’re admitted. Generally, Temple accepts academic, college-level courses beyond the developmental level completed with a grade C or better from schools with regional accreditation. Each academic department determines how credits apply to the major, and students meet with advising units during on-campus registration. For more information about transferring credits to Temple, check out our bulletin .

Temple also awards college credits for students who in high school participated in the Advanced Placement or International Baccalaureate programs.

The Transfer Equivalency Tool is designed to help current and prospective students determine how their college-level academic credits may transfer to Temple University. Use these tables to find the current listing of available Temple equivalents to classes at various two-year and four-year institutions as well as Advanced Placement, International Baccalaureate and CLEP exams.

Temple’s Dual Admissions program

We’ve established Dual Admissions agreements to help students transfer smoothly from local partner, two-year colleges. Students who have completed 30 or fewer college credits may enroll in the Dual Admissions program through a partner community college. Enrollment in Dual Admissions guarantees admission to most majors at Temple if the student finishes an associate degree with a 2.3 or higher GPA. Dual Admissions also guarantees additional scholarships to students who graduate from their community college with a 3.3 or higher GPA.

To enroll in Dual Admissions, simply fill out an Intent to Enroll form at your participating community college. The semester following your enrollment in the program, you will receive a letter confirming your enrollment in Dual Admissions. Then, in your final semester, you will fill out the Temple application. There will be an option on the application asking you to indicate if you’re a Dual Admissions student. You must then send all official college transcripts to Temple for admission consideration. Scholarships are awarded only after Temple receives a final transcript indicating that you have graduated through Dual Admissions with a cumulative GPA of 3.3 or higher.

Munsinger Gardens

From Sawmill to Flower Garden

The history of St. Cloud’s Munsinger Gardens may be compared to the garden’s well-worn paths; for both have interesting and unexpected turns. During the 1880s the lower east bank of the Mississippi River was the site of a sawmill. But by 1915 the city purchased the area for use as a neighborhood park. Eventually, the site became known as Riverside Park and Munsinger Gardens, the latter section named in honor of a former superintendent of parks, Joseph Munsinger. Munsinger Gardens has experienced many different stages of development. Improvements to the gardens occurred during the Great Depression through the Works Progress Administration. Projects from this period included planting trees and flowerbeds. Other additions included the creation of rock-lined paths, a lily pond, and a fountain. However, most of the work in developing the garden was directed by Joseph Munsinger. The first greenhouse was built in 1938. While the original greenhouse is gone, new ones stand in its place, and garden staff continues the tradition of growing flowers that help beautify this wonderful jewel known as Munsinger Gardens.

    Drawing realistic portrait from a photograph – portrait art tutorial #portrait, #drawing,


    How to draw a realistic pencil portrait from a photograph. How to draw the face in a realistic style. Tips suggestions.

    To the left is a pencil portrait drawn in the detailed realistic style. (Click on thumbnail image to see larger version.)

    There isn’t really much of a secret to drawing in this style. I was first introduced to this technique by one of my teachers who was an illustrator for the LA Times. and known for his extremely detailed work. He explained it very simply you just get a sharp pencil, smooth Bristol board, and draw in the itty-bitty details. His own work was known for its scary photo-realistic detail, so I was a little amazed that this was all that there was to it! But that was it!

    This portrait was drawn from a photograph. I didn’t use a grid or tracing paper I just sketched it in and rendered it.

    Consult the step-by-step portrait tutorial to get an overview on how to draw a portrait. The process I went through to draw this realistic style of portrait is pretty much the same as described in that tutorial.

    Materials to used for this drawing:

    Bristol Board, smooth finish. (Smooth finish illustration board will also work.) It is important that the paper be smooth, and doesn’t have a lot of tooth (texture). I use Strathmore Bristol Board, in the 9×12 or 11×14 sized pads.

    For this portrait, I used a .05 mechanical pencil. I usually use a B or 2B lead, but this time I only had an HB. It was sufficient. A regular pencil will work fine, as long as it is kept sharpened.

    Kneaded Rubber Eraser. It was invaluable in picking up stray lines, softening tones, and erasing errors. Really good with erasing small, delicate areas.

    To keep smudging at a minimum, I used a scrap of paper underneath my hand as I drew. I also attached a sheet of tracing paper to go over the drawing, sort of as an overlay. It was there to help prevent smearing as the drawing was being moved and transported around. The tracing paper also protected the drawing from fingerprints and dirt.

    All preliminary sketching was drawn lightly, so that stray pencil strokes could be erased later. When I felt I had drawn in the face correctly, I started lightly adding more detail and shading. I double-checked the drawing in the mirror (a good way to see errors) regularly, to make sure nothing had gone astray.

    All through the progress of the drawing, I used the Kneaded Rubber Eraser to lighten up areas, and erase mistakes. I would use the eraser to pat pat pat an area that had gotten too dark. This would lighten the area without smearing the graphite, or losing the quality of the pencil strokes. The eraser was also very good at completely erasing an area, without damaging the surface of the paper.

    The drawing progressed, as I kept adding more detail and shading. All shading was done lightly at first, and then darkened progressively. The sharp point on the .05 pencil kept all pencil strokes fine and small. This way, I was able to retain a realistic and detailed look to the drawing.

    I didn’t draw as much detail in the hair or clothing. This was a deliberate stylistic choice. The center of focus is the face, not the hair and clothes. It is a nice touch to have some loosely rendered areas, that allow the pencil strokes to show. This gives a nice arty feel to the portrait, and reminds us that it is a drawing. not a slavishly copied photograph.

    A detail of the eye. All the pencil strokes are crosshatched, not smeared or smudged. The gentle crosshatch gives the portrait a cleaner, neater appearance. It is much easier to control than smudging. Small subtle details are easier to define.

    If the crosshatching technique is done with these small, refined pencil strokes, the effect will look smooth and even photo-realistic when the portrait is seen at a normal distance.

    If contour lines are used in conjunction with the crosshatching, a subtle but effective dimensional effect will occur. This will enhance the realistic look of the portrait.

    A close-up of the nose and mouth. This is an enlarged view – the original drawing is much smaller.

    Notice that there is a subtle indication of a highlight on the tip of the nose, and a highlight on the bottom lip. This was achieved by gently laying down a light tone around these highlights. With a portrait this detailed, most of the face will be rendered as a light gray, so that such highlights will show up.

    When seen at normal size, most of these light pencil crosshatching strokes will not be very visible. However, the crosshatching technique is not unattractive, and needn’t been concealed, or hidden.

    The drawing was completed over the expanse of three days. I drew in and did most of the rendering of the face in one evening (perhaps 4 – 5 hours). Only the darkest dark tones were not yet rendered on the first night. The next evening I tweaked and corrected out some details. This took approx. 1 hour. The third night, I tweaked and corrected the drawing yet again. (Another hour or so.) Bear in mind that some portraits will take much longer to complete. It depends on the size of the drawing, the complexity of the pose, and how much drawing practice the artist has. The more practice you put in, the faster you’ll get.

    The actual time it took (in total hours) to complete the drawing isn’t as important as the days it took to declare it completed. I always need to wait a few days to finally consider the likeness to be OK. Getting the portrait drawn and rendered isn’t the problem that can be done in a few hours. Capturing the fleeting likeness takes more time, and objectivity. Just because the drawing is more or less in proportion doesn’t mean the likeness is there yet.

    It is almost impossible for me to really finish a drawing in one sitting. I am too close to the subject. Certain errors and problems just don’t pop out at me until I’ve slept on it. The likeness may appear to be good when I am working on the drawing, but in the morning I’ll see all sorts of problems. Therefore, I find it is preferable to do a drawing over the expanse of several days, rather than to rush it and try to finish it all in one sitting.

    Catalogue Note

    “Her clothes spread wide;
    And, mermaid-like, awhile they bore her up:
    Which time she chanted snatches of old tunes;
    As one incapable of her own distress,
    Or like a creature native and indued
    Unto that element: but long it could not be
    Till that her garments, heavy with their drink,
    Pull’d the poor wretch from her melodious lay
    To muddy death.”

    William Shakespeare
    Hamlet, Act IV, Scene VII

    Celebrated as one of the greatest actresses of all time, Sarah Bernhardt was also recognised for her talent in the medium of sculpture, a passion which complemented her success as a stage artist. The present marble relief of Ophelia is a rare surviving work signed by Bernhardt, and among her most important to appear at auction in recent memory. Deeply sensuous in form and conception, Ophelia testifies to the iconic actor’s considerable skill as a sculptor, while epitomising Bernhardt’s fascination with the morbid eroticism that surrounds Shakespeare’s heroine.

    Born in Paris to a courtesan and an unknown father, Sarah Bernhardt received her first training as an actor at the Comédie-Française from which she was expelled, prompting a brief period of activity as a courtesan. Resuming her acting career in 1866, Bernhardt began to develop a reputation on the stage at prestigious Parisian theatres. She soon found unprecedented fame across Europe and beyond, enjoying several worldwide tours during the 1880s and 1890s. Known in particular for her magisterial portrayals of tragic characters, Sarah Bernhardt’s legendary status continued into the early 20 th century, when she starred in silent films and remained active on the stage until her death in 1923.

    Sarah Bernhardt was as flamboyant a personality off the stage as she was in her dramatic roles. Famously, the actress acquired a coffin in the 1860s, in which she would pose and sleep regularly throughout her life. By thus fetishising her hypothetical corpse, Bernhardt displayed an erotically charged obsession with death that was both personal and symptomatic of her time – a time when morgues were places of public spectacle, and morbidly beautiful phenomena such as the death mask of ‘L’Inconnue de la Seine’ captivated the art scene.

    It was the same 19 th -century environment which gave rise to an artistic fascination with the character of Ophelia in William Shakespeare’s Hamlet. The tragic fate of the heroine, who becomes Hamlet’s lover but falls victim to the Prince’s plotting of revenge and, in her eventual madness, drowns in a stream, was depicted by painters such as Eugène Delacroix and, notably, John Everett Millais.

    Bernhardt’s activity as a sculptor began in the 1870s with guidance from Roland Mathieu-Meusnier and Jules Franceschi. Taking a studio in 1873, she went on to model a number of highly accomplished works, such as the group Après la Tempête. which she exhibited at the Salon in 1876.

    Despite being the most famous actress of her day, Sarah Bernhardt had never performed the role of Ophelia at the time her marble was conceived – it was not until 1886 that she appeared as Ophelia in a production of Hamlet. followed by a controversial turn as the eponymous character of Shakespeare’s tragedy in 1899. Yet Bernhardt’s prominent obsession with death had led to a long-lived fascination with the tragic heroine, and her sculptural representation of Ophelia became one of her most significant works. Modelled in 1880, the relief accompanied Bernhardt on her first tour of North America before being shown at the Paris Salon in 1881. Reviews of Ophelia were positive, praising it as a work ‘of which any sculptor might be proud’ (see Mason, op. cit. p. 312) – a choice of words which highlights Bernhardt’s unique status as both a woman and a full-time actress active in the profession of sculpture.

    The relief is thought to exist in a handful of versions in marble, the present example being an important rediscovery. The only other version whose location is known is that in Copenhagen, which was gifted to the Royal Theatre by Bernhardt in June 1881 and remains on display in its foyer. Another version is recorded to have been a gift to the Austrian painter Hans Makart, while a third was exhibited at the World’s Columbian Exposition in Chicago in 1893. Photographs reveal very slight variations between the marbles, and it is possible that the present version is that which was given to Makart. Bernhardt’s personal attachment to the work is revealed by her inclusion of a photograph of Ophelia – probably the plaster – in her 1907 memoirs.

    Bernhardt’s high relief represents Ophelia in bust-form, her head turned, her eyes closed, wearing a garland of flowers, and enveloped by water which merges with her tresses. The subtlety of Bernhardt’s modelling is showcased in the beautifully detailed flowers, as well as the delicate waves of the ‘glassy stream’, whose texture contrasts with the smooth and bulging form of Ophelia’s exposed right breast. Though seemingly depicted in the moment of her death, the woman’s sensuous open-mouthed expression, overt nudity, and languid pose exude an undeniable eroticism. Unaware of her suffering, the heroine appears to embrace her death as an ecstatic consummation. Bernhardt thus offers an original interpretation of the references to female sexuality and deflowering made by Shakespeare throughout the scene of Ophelia’s madness and Queen Gertrude’s speech describing her death, which makes use of sexualised imagery such as ‘long purples / That liberal shepherds give a grosser name’.

    In her later theatrical interpretations of the character, Bernhardt would add a heightened level of eroticism to Ophelia’s death by choosing to appear on stage herself as the dead Ophelia – instead of the conventional coffin – in the graveyard scene, in which her brother Laertes throws himself upon her body. Mirroring her sculptural portrait of the heroine, Bernhardt was described thus in a review by Joseph Knight (1886, as quoted in Young, op. cit. p. 23): ‘She is once more seen with her face rigid as marble, and her body, covered with flowers, …’

    Colleges in Tampa, Florida

    There are at least 25 Tampa colleges serving tens of thousands of students each year. Institutions range considerably in both size and focus, but include both public and private colleges, universities, and technical or vocational schools. The following are just three of the largest colleges in Tampa (by enrollment):

    • University of South Florida. The University of South Florida is a public college offering undergraduate and graduate degrees in a broad range of subjects. According to the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), USF’s 2013-2014 school year enrollment neared 41,500 students. Total estimated annual cost of tuition and fees that year was $6,410 for in-state students and $17,324 for out-of-state students.
    • Hillsborough Community College. HCC is a public, two-year community college offering primarily Associate degrees and certificates. Programs are designed with a mind for transfer to four-year institutions or workforce entry, depending on the discipline.The NCES reports that HCC’s total 2013-2014 enrollment exceeded 26,500. Total cost of tuition and fees that year was $2,506 for in-state students and $9,111 for out-of-state students.

    Careers in Tampa

    Tampa colleges are an investment that tends to pay-off in both earnings and overall employment. According to 2013 data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), Associate degree holders earned about $125 more per week on average than workers with high school diplomas alone. Bachelor’s degree holders earned about $450 more that year, and Master’s degree holders earned nearly $700 more, or about double the average weekly earnings for high school graduates. The disparity is even greater for workers with professional and doctoral degrees. The same trend also holds true for employment figures: unemployment rates tend to decline with more education.

    The following careers reported the highest mean earnings in Tampa in May of 2013, per the BLS.

    Most of the careers featured above require advanced doctoral or professional degrees, but some of the most popular careers in Tampa, such as nursing, information technology, and criminal justice, require just two- or four-year degrees.

    Conceptual art – Art Term #conceptual #art, #glossary


    Conceptual art

    Although the term concept art had been used in the early 1960s (Henry Flynt of the Fluxus group described his performance pieces as concept art in 1961), it was not until the late sixties that conceptual art as a definable movement emerged. Joseph Kosuth s series Titled (Art as Idea as Idea) 1966 7; the proposal for an exhibition Air Show Air/Conditioning 1966 7 by English artists Terry Atkinson and Michael Baldwin (founder members of the group Art Language ); John Baldessari s word paintings exhibited in LA in 1968; and important group exhibitions such as that organised by art dealer Seth Siegelaub in New York in 1969, January 1-31: 0 Objects, 0 Painters, 0 Sculptors reflected this growing ideas-based approach to art-making. The term conceptual art was first used to reference this distinct movement in an article written by Sol LeWitt in 1967:

    In conceptual art the idea or concept is the most important aspect of the work. When an artist uses a conceptual form of art, it means that all of the planning and decisions are made beforehand and the execution is a perfunctory affair.
    LeWitt, Paragraphs on Conceptual Art , Artforum Vol.5, no. 10, Summer 1967, pp. 79-83

    In 1973 a pioneering record of the early years of the movement appeared in the form of a book, Six Years. by the American critic Lucy Lippard. The six years were 1966 72. The long subtitle of the book referred to so-called conceptual or information or idea art .

    conceptual artworks

    Conceptual art can be and can look like almost anything. This is because, unlike a painter or sculptor who will think about how best they can express their idea using paint or sculptural materials and techniques, a conceptual artist uses whatever materials and whatever form is most appropriate to putting their idea across this could be anything from a performance to a written description. Although there is no one style or form used by conceptual artists, from the late 1960s certain trends emerged.

    Read the captions in the artworks below to find out about some of the main ways conceptual artists explored and expressed their ideas.

    See all artworks

    Performance: Ewa Partum used performance as a means of creating her poetry. Her poetic works were made by taking individual letters of the alphabet cut from paper, and scattering them in city and countryside locations. By deconstructing language, the artist aimed to explore its structures.

    Instructions: Rather than actually making wall-drawings himself, Sol LeWitt produced instructions, consisting of text and diagrams, outlining how his wall drawings could be made.

    Joseph Beuys
    I like America and America likes me

    Action: Beuys referred to his performance works as actions. His most famous action, I Like America and America Likes Me took place in May 1974. Beuys wrapped himself in felt and spent three days in a room with a coyote. The work was an expression of his anti-Vietnam War stance, and also reflected his beliefs about the damage done to the American continent and its native cultures by European settlers.

    Land art: To make this work Richard Long walked backwards and forwards in a field until the flattened turf caught the sunlight and became visible as a line. He photographed the work, as a means of recording this physical intervention within the landscape.

    Body art: Originally conceived as a performance, McLean s poses are an ironic and humorous commentary on what he considered to be the pompous monumentality of traditional large plinth-based sculptures. The artist later had himself photographed, repeating the poses.

    Jannis Kounellis
    Untitled 1969
    Tate / National Galleries of Scotland

    Found objects: Some conceptual artists use found objects to express their ideas. For example artists in the Italian arte povera group used all kinds of found objects and low-value materials such as twigs, cloth and fat, with the aim of challenging and disrupting the values of the commercialised contemporary gallery system. (Arte povera means ‘poor art’).

    Documentation: In Post-Partum Document 1975, Mary Kelly documented the relationship between herself and her son over a period of six years. Drawing on contemporary feminist thought, and in particular on psychoanalysis, it explores the contradictions for a woman artist between her creative and procreative roles.

    Film and video: Film and video is often used by conceptual artists to record their actions or performances. Gilbert George s art is a form of self-portraiture, since they almost always feature in their own work. They see no separation between their activities as artists and their everyday existence, and since 1969 have presented themselves as living sculptures.

    When, why and where did conceptual art happen?

    As a definable movement conceptual art is associated with the 1960s and 1970s, but its origins reach beyond these two decades. Marcel Duchamp is often seen as an important forefather of conceptual art, and his readymade Fountain of 1917 cited as the first conceptual artwork.

    The movement that emerged in the mid 1960s and continued until the mid 1970s was international, happening more or less simultaneously across Europe, North America and South America.

    Artists associated with the movement attempted to bypass the increasingly commercialised art world by stressing thought processes and methods of production as the value of the work. The art forms they used were often intentionally those that do not produce a finished object such as a sculpture or painting. This meant that their work couild not be easily bought and sold and did not need to be viewed in a formal gallery situation.

    It was not just the structures of the art world that many conceptual artists questioned, there was often a strong socio-political dimension to much of the work they produced, reflecting wider dissatisfaction with society and government policies. (See for example Joseph Beuys s social sculpture ).

    Although as a definable art movement conceptual art is associated with the 1960s, many artists continue to make conceptual art in the twenty-first century (such as Martin Creed and Simon Starling ).

    Top 100 Schools for Animation, Gaming, and Design #top #100 #schools #in


    Top 100 Schools for Animation, Gaming, and Design

    Did You Know. Full Sail University offers online degree programs in computer animation, game art, and game design? Learn more about Full Sail University’s online programs.

    The animation education industy has never been so competitive, with schools competing for students and students competing for a small number of available industry jobs. The job rate and student employability has dropped to the lowest in years, so a top-notch animation education has never been so critical.

    All this has made choosing the right animation school extremely difficult. To help students navigate through the world of animation schools, we’ve put together the Top 100 most highly-regarded and sought after animation schools on the planet. This list of the Top 100 Schools in Animation, Gaming and Design was compiled via a mixture of school reviews, industry-reviewed lists like the Princeton Review, and via a survey of the animation industry professionals and recruiters from companies like Pixar, J.J. Sedelmaier and DreamWorks who were featured in our Interview Series. And without further ado, here are your Top 100 Schools in Animation, Gaming and Design:

    Let’s start this list off with a bang by beginning with the School of the Museum of Fine Arts. This design school made our list because it is a tight-knit school that offers a fully customizable course load—but unlike some of their competitors they do it without school-defined majors. They definitely win the prize for being the most flexible program (or lackthereof) on this list. Only problem is: if you don’t like the education you get then you have only yourself to blame (and I suppose the mentor who helps you craft your personalized program). No worries though, their wide-selection of Film, Animation, Illustration and Graphic Design courses certainly won’t let you down.

    The University of Visual Arts in Tucson has a small faculty (with an excellent teacher-to-student ratio) and a small-art school vibe. But don’t let the size fool you, this highly-advanced visual arts school packs a wallop with their Graphic Design. Animation and Illustration programs. They also offer BFA degrees in Studio Art and Photography, an MFA degree in Studio Arts with three areas of emphasis, one of which is Motion Arts. Their animation and design courses are highly practical as they focus heavily on industry-dominating Flash software and character development.

    When your entire focus is animation, you get pretty good at it; when all you teach is animation, you get pretty good at that too. The Animation Workshop’s sole focus on animation has paid off as they have become the top Scandinavian animation school, and one of the best in Europe. The school has five departments, each focusing on a different element of animation; each department enrolls a limited number of students annually—so that they maintain their great teacher-to-student ratio. Despite their northerly location the school and faculty have fostered tight relationships with the European animation community and have landed positions for their graduates at DreamWorks in the U.S, Brown Bag Films in Ireland, Aardman in the U.K. Cartoon-Film in Germany, Folimage in France, BRB in Spain and more.

    The Film and TV School of the Academy of Performing Arts in Prague (FAMU) takes a unique approach to preparing their students to work in the animation industry, they require at least one (most students complete two) short film(s) before graduation. These short films are made in conjunction with the production, editing, sound and photography departments so the animation grads leave school with a professional-looking film; films that regularly score the school’s graduates entry level jobs at prominent studios across Europe. FAMU has two animation programs, a three-year bachelor’s program and a five-year master’s. Their master’s program in animation is extremely tough to get into though as they accept just five students annually.

    9Zeros in Spain hosts three four-year animation programs: Cartooning, 3D Animation and Stop Motion. The stop-motion program steals the show at this school though as the 400-hour program is good—and the only one on the continent. This boutique program accepts just 120 students a year. Included in the program is an internship with European-based studios that the school maintains close ties with and an end-of-the-program final project to add to their portfolio. The Spanish animation scene absorbs most of 9Zeros’ graduates.

    La Poudrière is an animation school created over a decade ago by France’s most-prominent animation studio, Folimage. The directors at Folimage designed La Poudrière’s program in an interesting way. there is no faculty. Instead the students are taught by the 60 to 80 guest lecturers that rotate through the campus annually. The school’s two-year animation program focuses heavily on animated film directing, has a max of 10 students per class and is taught primarily via supervised projects to ensure that students get the most hands-on experience possible and leave school with a hefty portfolio. Another interesting, and highly realistic, part of the program is that students are forced to create their work within given budgets and time schedules.

    The Art Center College of Design (often referred to simply as the ‘Art Center’) has been regularly listed as a top art/design school by BusinessWeek, U.S. News, DesignIntelligence, and U.S. News World Report. Their degree programs in Entertainment Design. Film. Fine Art. Graphic Design. Illustration and Interaction Design all offer tempting elements to aspiring animators, designers and game designers. Their courses are heavily influenced by pop culture, hand and life drawing and a mixture of emerging media.

    If living in Long Beach, California wasn’t enough to sell prospective design students on going to California State University Long Beach, then the program the school created would do it. Their BA and BFA degree programs in Graphic Design, Illustration and Studio Art offer interesting tracks in illustration and/or animation; meaning they train artists first, then turn them into animators. This strategy is working well because California’s top animation studios recruit from CSU Long Beach. They also offer interesting media courses in their Journalism and Mass Communications department.

    This little beauty was a favorite amongst the employers surveyed in our Interview Series. and was mentioned by many as a school they regularly recruit from. Can’t blame ’em really, because their BA degrees in Animation, Video/Digital art, Graphic Design and Illustration when combined with electives from their Studio Art, Video/Digital Art, Visual Communication and Graphic Design concentrations create superhero-like graduates (think: unstoppable).

    The National Institute of Design is India’s foremost institution teaching design and animation, and considering how good the animation talent is coming out of India these days, that says a lot. The school’s mingling courses in Graphic Design, Animation Film Design, Film Video Communication and Exhibition (Spatial) Design are turning out incredibly artsy animators that are providing steady competition for American animation studios. While nobody in animation and gaming likes to talk about outsourcing, NID is the school training the animation masters behind the trend, training artists as well as software experts. They’re good, real good.

    You will notice a massive amount of Vancouver animation schools making the list, but this should come as no surprise given their massively successful animation scene and ability to usurp a large amount of animation graduates. The Emily Carr University of Art and Design is another Vancouver-based art and design school to proudly make our list. But we couldn’t pick just one program from Emily Carr to add to this list because the strength of the school is mutually reinforcing the artistic education of its students via multidisciplinary groups, electives and through major/minor combos. The mix of courses between the school’s well-known Animation major , Interactive + Social Media Arts major , Communication Design major. Industrial Design major. Interaction Design major. Film, Video + Integrated Media major. Illustration major and Visual Arts major have created a symbiotic place to learn an amazingly-broad spectrum of visual and computer-aided arts. Students enjoy their university experience at Emily Carr due to the incredibly talented student body, students with whom they get to network and work on a daily basis. This talented student body provides regular doses of inspiration and artistic creativity.

    Becoming an Art Teacher: Education and Career Roadmap

    Should I Become an Art Teacher?

    Art teachers are qualified educators and, in some instances, artists who instruct students in theoretical and practical knowledge of art theory, art history, aesthetics, visual art, ceramics, design and other art-related subjects. Art teachers may work with students from kindergarten through secondary school, based on their certification. Teaching art may be challenging, since some students might not consider it to be a serious subject and may not put forth their best efforts. On the other hand, turning students around and helping them find their ‘inner artists’ could be very rewarding for these teachers. Most teachers don’t have to work during the summer months, though some teach summer school.

    Career Requirements

    Sources: U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, University of Iowa.

    Step 1: Earn a Bachelor’s Degree

    As stated by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), art teachers intending to instruct at the high school level usually undertake degree programs in the arts and augment them with classes in education, while art teachers who expect to teach elementary education generally complete bachelor’s degree programs associated with teaching. Education programs highlight areas such as child and adolescent development, teaching diverse learners and lesson planning. Art courses can include drawing, painting, sculpting, metalsmithing, printmaking, ceramics or photography, contingent upon the particular major a student chooses. Teacher education programs may be fulfilled simultaneously with the bachelor’s degree program or independently after attaining a bachelor’s degree. While attending college, a potential art teacher must satisfy an internship or supervised field experience at a local school.

    Step 2: Get a Teaching Certificate

    All states expect public school art teachers to possess state licensure, according to the BLS. Even though exact specifications differ by state, all states demand that individuals seeking a standard teaching license have a combination of education and experience acquired as an element of an approved teacher training program. In addition, the majority of states require that future educators complete competency exams that prove basic and subject matter knowledge. Apart from a bachelor’s degree and student teaching field experience, the policies for certification vary by state.

    Step 3: Complete a Master’s Degree

    Some public schools require teaching candidates to have a master’s degree. A number of master’s programs are intended for individuals who have attained a bachelor’s degree in art but are not certified or for educators certified in different fields who would like an art certification. Occasionally, art teachers with bachelor’s degrees enter a master’s degree program to further their careers even if their state does not expect education beyond a bachelor’s degree.

    Step 4: Obtain National Certification

    Although not a necessity, art teachers may pursue art teaching certificates through the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards (NBPTS) in Early and Middle Childhood or Early Adolescence through Young Adulthood. To apply for certification, an art teacher must have a bachelor’s degree, valid teaching license and a minimum of three years of work experience. Certification may take up to three years and entails demonstrating knowledge by means of a four-part portfolio and completion of six computer-based assessments. Depending on the state and district, the advantages of earning a certificate may include increased pay, reimbursement for qualifying educational expenses and the capability to teach in another state without having to acquire a new license.

    Step 5: Advance Your Career

    Art teachers can pursue further training and national certification to increase their salary. They can also teach classes with museums and organizations, or teach private lessons. Those with a master’s degree can continue their studies to earn a PhD and seek employment as a college art professor. Many postsecondary teachers pursue tenure through their college or university. Tenured college professors or those on a tenure track are paid more than part-time faculty and are periodically reviewed for promotion and salary increases.

    About us

    Welcome to Emerald Schools

    raising role models

    Emerald High School was established in 2005 as a progression from the highly academically successful Emerald Nursery and Primary School in Lagos, which was established in 1995. The establishment of Emerald High School was in response to the yearnings of parents in the primary school and the need to bridge the gap in providing high quality Secondary School Education in the country. We are aware of the problems of today’s child, which include a hostile society that has not much to offer by way of values/morals and cramped learning environment, which do not help the child to attain his/her full potentials. With a view to making the difference, we at Emerald took cognizance of the gaps in the education sector in deciding what facilities and personnel to emplace, right from the inception of the school.

    The permanent site, which became operational from September 2007 gives us even a better opportunity to explore all possibilities in child development. It is located in a 34 acres farmland in the serene valley of the sleepy Ogunrun-Ori Village in Ogun State, a mere 25 minutes leisurely drive from the former Toll Gate at the Lagos end of the Lagos-Ibadan Express Road. It is easily accessible from every part of the country by road or by air through Ibadan or Lagos axis. It is indeed an ideal learning environment because of its calm and beautiful scenery and insulation from city noise.

    The Board of Governors, which is made up of men and women who have distinguished themselves in their chosen professions, which include Accounting, Banking, Human Resources Management, Education and Public Service, is very confident of the quality of education it has fashioned out. No wonder then that many of the members have/had their children in the school.

    The school believes in building a solid foundation for the child, and as such goes to great length in emplacing holistic education programmes that incorporates best practices.We are always conscious of our vision of becoming a widely acclaimed school both locally and internationally and as such, we strive to turn out students with passion for excellence and who have been adequately prepared for tertiary education and life. We have put in place modern structures, quality manpower, condusive environment and adequate support services that a good school needs to run smoothly. Furthermore we have emplaced good security measures, students’ performance enhancing programmes, co-curricular activities, foreign Students exchange programmes coupled with regular visits to places of educational and social interest. We operate a robust information technology platform where students and teachers interact through their laptops and wide range network to complement classroom delivery.

    We handle with care the health and comfort of our students. The hostels are run by competent personnel and that are constantly being trained to cope with day to day challenges of a modern day hostel. The clinic is stocked with good quality drugs under the supervision of qualified matrons and other experienced medical staff. We have a working agreement with a nearby high standard hospital where health cases are referred and treated when the need arises.

    Our curriculum is a blend of British and Nigerian curriculum and the students write the following examinations: IGCSE, Checkpoint, NECO (Junior School) BECE and WASSCE. We also tutor students for TOEFL and SAT.

    The results have been impressive over the years and to sustain this, our teachers are regularly trained both locally and abroad. All students have an insurance cover provided by a prominent insurance service provider. The insurance policy covers the students to the extent that in the unlikely event of the loss of the breadwinner (who is named in the policy) while in the school, they are able to continue their education.

    The parents play a very important role in determining some of the policies of the school on the platform of the Parents Management Forum(PMF). The PMF of the school is headed by officers of high reputation and commitment who have been elected from the Parents. The parents on this platform partner with the school on various fronts in the education of the children.

    Your choice of Emerald High School is a good decision and it is with great pleasure that I welcome you to Emerald High School, where together, we shall raise role models.

    Plymouth City Museum and Art Gallery – St Luke s Hospice Silver

    #st lukes hospice plymouth





    St Luke’s Hospice Silver Anniversary

    Community and Outreach staff from the Museum worked with St Luke’s Hospice during the first half of 2007 on a special project to help them mark their 25th anniversary. The project culminated in a display in the Museum’s Discovery Centre plus a newly commissioned piece of art and information panels for the Hospice.

    Staff worked with day care patients, talking to them about their experiences and asking them how they’d like to celebrate its silver anniversary. From their feedback, a decision was made to produce a new painting that could be donated to the Hospice.

    Plymouth-based artist, Xiao Bi Li was commissioned. The day care patients had asked for a calming view of the water so as part of his research he took a number of photographs from Turnchapel. These were used to create a panoramic view, which was then used as the basis for his painting.

    The painting was displayed alongside information panels exploring the history of the Hospice, nurse’s uniforms and letters and cards from the Royal Family in the Museum’s Discovery Centre. It now hangs in St Luke’s at Pern.

    The Museum’s outreach staff hope to return to St Luke’s in the future to run more reminiscence sessions.
