Degrees and Certifications:
Welcome to the Art Department!!!!
My name is Mr. Nappa and I'm the Art teacher for the Elementary Academy here at the SCESC. I received my B.A. in Graphic Design from Indiana University of Pennsylvania in Indiana, PA. Cool fact here: This was the hometown of Jimmy Stewart who was a movie star and WW2 war hero. As for me I have been furthering my education taking classes towards my masters from New Jersey City University in Jersey City, N.J.
I enjoy teaching students about Art and it's connections to our world. It is my intention to provide a welcoming environment of individual attention and creative expression. In my classroom, students are provided a framework to improve their Art making and communication skills while learning about how other Artists have responded to "Big Idea" topics such as Power, Ecology, Place, etc. throughout the years. Students have Art making options and are encouraged to pursue projects that are personally engaging and challenging.
Outside the classroom I enjoy the outdoors, reading, running, landscaping, playing soccer and being with my fantastic family. I also enjoy mixed martial arts.
