Art and Innovation in Public High School in Paterson New Jersey (Geraldine Dodge STEAM Grant)

Pen and Ink Drawing by Pen and Ink Drawing by Jacqueline Romero Grade 12  18x20"

With so much bad news coming out of Paterson, NJ, lately, where I work as an Art Professor in Residence at East Side High School, I thought I would show off some of the innovative and positive things being created in Paterson as a result of the ongoing collaborations between myself, the 3 art teachers and other content area teachers, in this case, the science teacher. (And, naturally, the students!) We have a "STEAM" (STEAM=Science + Technology, + Engineering + Art, + Math) grant funded by the Geraldine Dodge Foundation. 

I co-author the STEAM blog with Math and Science Professor in Residence, Dina Scacchetti, who is also the Dodge Grant Manager.
