This is my fourth year as the Art Teacher at Woodlynne School and my thirteenth year of teaching Art. I love being creative and truly enjoy making art with your kids! This year, we are fortunate to have new tables in the Art room and I am excited to be creative in our new space.

My goal for every student is that they feel inspired to learn, excited to be creative, motivated to do their best, and confident in expressing themselves. During Art class, students will study a variety of cultures, artists, and works of art, and explore numerous techniques with different mediums. They will also strengthen academic skills that are being learned in their classrooms.

In addition to teaching the K through 8th grade Art classes, I am also offering a middle school incentive cursive writing class.  I may have the opportunity to teach your middle school student how to write in beautiful script.

On a personal note, I have three children of my own on whom I test many of my projects to make sure that they are fun and allow for lots of personality. In my free time, I make drawings and paintings of my own that I sometimes exhibit. 

Please don't hesitate to reach out. You can email me at: jmelchiorre@woodlynne.k12.nj.us or call me at: (856) 962-8822, ext. 175.

It's going to be another great year!
