WHS Art Teacher Featured At Several Shows

“Coastal Shadows Revisited” by art teacher Jerilyn Brown.

Some suggest that “those that can’t, teach.” However, in fact, good teachers not only can do, but they do with expertise. They can also deconstruct the process, breaking it down into teachable steps.

Three art exhibits of work by art educators are taking place simultaneously in Palm Beach County. Artist and teacher Jerilyn Brown, who teaches art to grades 9 through 12 at Wellington High School, is among the featured artists. Three of her watercolors are currently in the exhibition “Common Ground” with many other Palm Beach County art teachers at the art gallery at Palm Beach State College’s Eissey Campus, on display now through Sept. 8. Call Karla Walter at (561) 207-5015 to learn more.

Brown’s acrylic painting on canvas “Coastal Shadows Revisited” is joined by 40 other artist educators’ art works from the Dreyfoos School of the Arts, where Brown worked as an artist in residence in 1989. The exhibition is at Cultural Council of Palm Beach County now through Aug. 18. Call Nicole Hinkley at (561) 207-5015 to learn more.

A third exhibition of art educators is taking place at Clay-Glass-Metal-Stone Gallery in downtown Lake Worth. Brown is exhibiting an 18 x 24 acrylic on canvas as part of a group show with other members of the Palm Beach County Art Teachers Association. That exhibit runs through June 4. Call Tracy Rosof Peterson at (561) 588-8344 to learn more.
