We Share Our Gratitude For Arts Educators And Celebrate Dr. Nicole Crane’s 2020 Florida Outstanding Art Educator of the Year Award

Dr. Nicole Crane is an art teacher at Elbridge Gale Elementary School and recently received the 2020 Florida Outstanding Art Educator of the Year Award from the Florida Art Education Association (FAEA).  The award recognizes individuals who have achieved the highest level of professionalism in art education and have contributed their services in an exemplary way to the FAEA and to shared professional goals.  The Rickie Report speaks with Dr. Crane about her journey and what everyone needs to know about the arts in our schools.  We have been grateful for the arts which have given us comfort during the Covid crises.  The appreciation of the arts begins in childhood.  We wish our readers a peaceful Thanksgiving and reflect on the gratitude that fills our lives.

“I have fond memories of my teachers and the role they played in my life,” Dr. Crane said. I decided to use my artistic talent and become a teacher to share that passion with students.”

 

 

 

We celebrate Dr. Nicole Crane and the joy of creativity to her classroom!  She originally intended to become a high school photography teacher, but changed her mind during the internship she held as part of the certification process for art educators, in which teachers split their time between primary and secondary schools. She tells The Rickie Report, “After spending a semester interning in elementary school, I decided that was the level I would teach. Twenty-three years later, I am still grateful for that decision and I love my job.”

 

That gratitude and dedication to her profession motivates the instruction she provides to her students in her classroom. She also makes an effort to offer guidance and serve as a positive example for the kids she teaches, lessons they will take with them once they move on to middle school and beyond.  “I hope they have a love for art, creativity, and innovation,” Dr. Crane said. “Regardless of their artistic ability, I instill the value and enjoyment of art as it relates to their academic subjects, future career choices, and everyday lives.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

“It is an honor to receive the award and I am thankful for the support of my school and colleagues,” Dr. Crane said. “I can attest to the quality of our county’s art educators so it is a sincere honor to be nominated by my peers and selected by a state committee.”  From 2008-2018, she served on the board of directors of the FAEA, including a stint as president. Her high-level involvement in the field is no surprise, as Dr. Crane always loved art. From the time she was in high school, she knew that art education would be her chosen career.  One of Dr. Crane’s teachers, who she describes as “amazing”, supported her interests and helped her find college photography programs. This led to her completing a bachelor’s degree in photography, followed by a master’s and doctorate in art education from Florida State University.

 

 

 

 

Q  &  A      WITH      DR.     NICOLE     CRANE

 

 

 

 

TRR:  Why did you choose photography as your medium?  

 

Dr. Crane tells us, “I remember taking photography and loved capturing moments that would otherwise pass possible unnoticed. At the time, it was film not digital. The process of photography from taking the photo to developing and printing and all the possibilities it offered were what drew me to the medium.

TRR:How do your students access photography equipment?

Dr. Crane explains, “Over the years, we have received grants to cover expenses. The availability of devices has increased the opportunity for digital photography.

 

 

 

 

TRR: Especially since Covid, our teachers have been stretched to the max! We want the public to better understand the challenges you face, as an art teacher.

Dr. Crane says, “Kids still love to create. Whether we are in the art room using a variety of mediums or drawing together virtually, they enjoy the opportunity to express themselves. Students are resilient and will be stronger based on their experiences.”

TRR:Is there a way for the public to make donations to help in this effort?

 

Dr. Crane tells us, “The arts always welcome donations and financial support. Teachers have Adopt-A-Class funds and donations are always welcome!”

The Florida Art Education Association (FAEA) promotes visual arts education in Florida through professional development, service, advancement of knowledge and leadership. FAEA promotes quality instruction in visual arts education conducted by certified instructors of art. FAEA encourages research in art education, holds public discussions, sponsors institutes, conferences and programs; publishes articles, reports and surveys; and works with other related agencies in support of visual arts education.

 

 

Dr. Nicole Crane received her BS in Photography before she went on to earn her Masters and PhD in Art Education from Florida State University. Nicole is a National Board Certified Art Teacher and National STEM Certified with over 22 years teaching experience. She has taught in Palm Beach County for 14 years and is also a college adjunct instructor.  Nicole was selected as the 2011 Florida Art Elementary Teacher of the Year by the Florida Art Education Association and served on the FAEA Board of Directors for eight years including President from 2016-2017.

The Next Chapter & Expansion

 

 

Brewhousenextchapter

At almost one year to the date, AJ Brockman tells The Rickie Report, “The Brewhouse Gallery is proud to announce we are expanding! We will be taking over the next door location (to the West) which was formerly a convenience store. We don’t want to alter the good vibes we have already established, so we’re hoping to have two separate spaces that are connected. This will allow for a better flow of traffic, expanded draft list, expanded bottle selection, vintage arcade games, communal tables and the all-important expanded FOOD SELECTION. What about the art? Well… We will have a 30 foot wall that will be dedicated to a rotating mural project. We will be highlighting some of the area’s best muralists to create a new mural every six months or so. As we have said from day one, it is our goal to create a community around our space and vision. Above all, it is the support of each and every one of you and the belief in what we are doing that has brought all of this to fruition. Here’s to: supporting the arts, live music, the revival of Lake Park, craft breweries that care about their product, independent coffee roasters, the small businessman & one hell of an upcoming year! Cheers!”

Thanks for all you do Pepe, we love you, cheers to your new title! Also, We are launching NEW HOURS!

Jennifer Love Gironda Exhibits her “January Series, 2015”

When Jennifer Love Gironda is not teaching or with the Art Hive crew covering events, she is  making art…ALWAYS making art. Jennifer made a commitment to making art every day in January 2012 and hasn’t missed a day since, creating well over 1100 works!  Jennifer believes that Maya Angelou said it best, “You can’t use up creativity. The more you use, the more you have.” The Rickie Report shares some of Jennifer’s artwork and urges you to stop by Art-Sea Living in Delray, the Brewhouse Gallery (for the Palm Beach County Art Teachers Association Exhibit) or Gallery 2014 in Hollywood, FL.  to see her artistry.   We believe Maya and Jennifer!  Here are a few pieces from her “Miss Matchy Matchy” series.

 

 

JENNIFER  LOVE GIRONDA

 

 

 

With all of her exuberance, Jennifer tells us, “The pieces below are from my January 2015 series, ‘Miss Matchy Matchy’. I love jewelry (seriously…I even started a blog just for jewelry!) and for this series I found inspiration in, what else? My jewelry! Each piece was in some way inspired by a piece that I own, which I explain on my art blog and also provide links to the jewelry on my jewelry blog”.

“I created a main ‘character’ for the series, a fun, fashion-loving gal named Miss Matchy Matchy and her cat, Trinket. Later in the series I introduced her friend Jewel, along with her cat Gem. And the ‘final’ piece in the series is the ‘fairy glam-mother’, Iris Apfel!   ‘Final’…not sure this series is over…”

Jennifer tells The Rickie Report, “Life is tough and full of negative truths. In my own life I have known poverty, instability and loss of loved ones. For me, making art fills up those dark places with light and love. My goal is to put some whimsy and light out into the world, a little of my heART.  I am inspired by the female face, by fashion, by flowing hair. I love color, and texture. My favorite artists include artists from history, such as Alphonse Mucha, Gustav Klimt, Marc Chagall, Frida Kahlo, and René Gruau. I am also influenced by artists working today in a variety of genres, from the street art of Kazilla, the altered books of Teesha Moore, the mixed media works of Sunny Carvalho, the textiles of Susan Sorrell and also fashion illustrations.

 

"January 29, 2015" by Jennifer Love Gironda

“January 29, 2015” by Jennifer Love Gironda

 

“The faces I create are an ongoing narrative of the happenings of a contemporary, quirky woman who is not afraid to be happy, sad, serious or downright silly. I depict her in a variety of moods, with stretched out limbs so that she can handle her daily adventures with grace. I always opt for an exaggerated eye to maximize her expression, which is often a state of wonder at the world around her”.

 

"January 26, 2015" by Jennifer Love Gironda

“January 26, 2015” by Jennifer Love Gironda

 

 

“I explore this character through diverse styles and a variety of media within monthly themes, creating a new piece each day. I often include hints of my own daily happenings, such as places I am visiting or people that I am around. While my work is spontaneous, the way in which I work…daily art within monthly themes,  it is very structured and organized, which gives me a sense of calm”.

“I also have a side passion I call ‘Angel Dropping’. I leave small angel paintings for people to find, often in places where I feel folks could really use an angel, like in the recovery or loss section of the book store. The thought of people finding these angels, or looking at my art and it making them smile feels my heart with joy and love…I put that back into making more work”.

Durga Garcia’s ABCs on Getting Your Work Out There Part I

Durga Garcia is a professional fine art photographer who, for the past five years, has made her business flourish.  In 2013/14, she was not only inducted in NAWA (National Women Artists Association)  but also exhibited a SOLO Show at NAWA’s headquarters in New York City!  The Rickie Report is pleased to share a two-part article, with Durga’s clear-cut system to “Getting Your Work Out There”.

 

 

 

“The ABC’s

of

Getting Your ArtWork Out There”

by

Durga Garcia

 

 

dg-masthead-whosdurga_001

 

 

Durga tells The Rickie Report, “This is what I have learned after 5 years of entering art shows… From my first local show in Delray Beach, living through those first rejections and not winning 1st prize, to now entering international level competitions, exhibiting Internationally and winning awards.  I have now graduated to being asked to review portfolios and be a juror to shows.  These experiences have given me a special insight for helping to ensure success and not taking rejections personally.”

 

 

First – Be Prepared

 

  • Have good images of your artwork

 

  • Be able to re-size and re-name files

 

  • Have Artists Statement(s)

 

  • Have Several: CV / Bio, short, long, specific

 

  • Have a Head shot

 

 

DGArt_37

 

 

 

Not all competitions ask for the same information nor the same size file, be prepared.  If you need help managing these computer-related tasks, contact The Rickie Report.  Rickie has a list of resources who can help!  You need to ask yourself: Do I want to spend time and energy on the “business” part or would I be better off hiring someone and use my time to CREATE?
