Who Am I? A little background, with some thoughts about art:

Wolski's Web Sites:

I graduated from Westminster College in 1990 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Art Education.My emphasis was in Ceramics and Photography.I received a research/teaching assistantship with a ‘full-ride’ to the University of Tennessee (GO VOLS!) for my Master’s degree. My concentration was in Ceramics and Photography.In 1992 I graduated and started teaching elementary art K-8 full-time in Crossville, Tennessee.I was responsible for 2 schools (1600 students).I even crossed a time-zone on my way to work everyday!In 1996 I was hired in the Mentor School system to teach various art classes, 7-9thgrade, at Shore Jr. High, spending some time at Ridge and Memorial Jr. Highs.For the 2004-2005 school year I started teaching ceramics and photography classes at Mentor High School.I am now in my 22nd year teaching, my 10th year teaching at Mentor High School.

I have traveled to Europe four times and spent a summer living in Berlin, Germany.I have also worked summers at the theme park ‘Dollywood’ making utilitarian pieces on the pottery wheel to sell at the park.I have my own working studio for ceramics at my house and (when time allows) I sell my wheel thrown pieces in a friend’s shop in Greenville, Pennsylvania where I grew-up.I am also taking digital photos when/where ever I can and have built up a collection of over 20,000 digital images.

I am married to Michael Wolski, who also teaches at Mentor High School in the History Department, I have two children and one silly dog.

Philosophy:

I believe in practicing what I preach.If I am going to make the student do a specific art assignment, then I should have already tried it myself.I believe in being an art teacher that creates art, as well as, an artist that teaches art.I am at my most creative-self when I am doing, and that is what I strive for with my students.The ability to create is in all people and my goal is help the student find an outlet for that creativity.
