Emily Fucello, Assistant Director, Education & Instructor
What Emily Fucello loves about VisArts? Opportunities to experiment with different teaching methods!
Emily loves teaching at VisArts and being constantly surrounded by art. She studied privately from elementary through high school, taught arts and crafts during middle school and high school and obtained a BFA from Frostburg State College. Emily learned early on how to tailor her teaching strategies so that even children who said they didn’t like art ended up creating and enjoying their work.
Emily feels that VisArts gives instructors the opportunity to experiment with a variety of teaching methodologies while working with first time students through seasoned artists. This serves her well in classes she teaches for teens and adults who have developmental disabilities. Emily’s success as an instructor for these students was recently evident when one of her students was reluctant to leave her ceramic work for an exhibition, but finally relinquished it with great pride (and a huge smile) when Emily told how much her art would inspire others.
Emily thinks that opportunities to experiment are possible because VisArts provides an extremely supportive environment with access to a variety of art materials, as well as classroom management training, and flexibility in developing course curricula.
