November 19, 2008 — Langham Creek High School art teacher Sandi Pippin received the opportunity to write the cover story for the November issue of Arts & Activities magazine, the nation’s oldest art education publication.
Pippin wrote the story, entitled “Printmaking: A Unit,” while she was at Labay Middle School last year. The article includes step-by-step instructions on how to teach printmaking based on her personal classroom instruction.
The 35-year teaching veteran said she was influenced by her college art adviser, who also previously wrote articles for Arts & Activities.
“ I guess I decided then that when I had something to contribute to other art educators, I would share my experiences,” Pippin said.
“Printmaking: A Unit” is Pippin’s sixth published article, and the first cover story. She has also helped fellow art teachers within the district by hosting staff development workshops and fielding numerous phone calls and emails to assist with specific art-related objectives.
“I am always happy when the articles I have written have been published,” she said. “If my experiences with students can make another teacher's life easier, then I am thrilled!”
A print made by Langham Creek High School graduate Eberle Osemele was featured on the cover of the November issue of Arts & Activities, coinciding with Langham Creek art teacher Sandi Pippin’s cover story, “Printmaking: A Unit.”
