Alumni News

 

We hope that you are enjoying life out in the real world!  The Art Department is interested to know what you have been up to since Graduation.  We are planning, in the coming year, to do some extensive marketing work and re-envisioning of our Studio program.  To that end, we are very interested in your feedback, not only about what you are doing now, but what components of your work at Wagner helped prepare you for that, and what additional components you think could be added to the program.

Part of the redesign will feature graduate news about current projects and perspectives.  We would like to invite you contribute.  Come in to campus for a video interview to be a featured graduate on the website! Or, submit a short paragraph about what you have been doing in the real world - art or non-art related, or perhaps a recent photo of art work you have been working on!

We would love to hear what you have been creating!

 

 

 

 

Ashley Jaye Class

Ashley Jaye: I graduated Wagner in 2009 and was an Education/Fine Arts major. I began teaching as an elementary art teacher that September after I graduated and have been thus since, I'm in my 5th year now. My second year teaching I was honored with teacher of the year, an award given to one teacher in every school in our school district. Wagner has definitely influenced my teaching. For example I loved my Ancient Egyptian art history course and infuse the knowledge I learned into many of my lessons with my students. My 5th graders make  Egyptian  portraits,  my 3rd graders make an Egyptian sarcophagus, and my 2nd graders paint hieroglyphics.
