Melissa DavenportVisual Arts, Metal 
Home Partner: Southern Alleghenies Museum of Art

She has been a lifelong self-taught artist working with many mediums. While teaching many diverse groups, she became a Pennsylvania Council Rostered artist in 2002. Her primary medium, metal, incorporates vocabulary, history, science, and physics as well as life skills and critical thinking. 

Although she has experience working with students from all ages, she prefers fifth grade and older, as metal can sometimes be challenging, but rewarding as well. She can tailor any lesson plan to fit within a classroom, or organization’s objectives. She has worked with at-risk youth as well as the learning disabled.

There are many things to be learned from making art. Some are obvious, but other lessons are multilayered or hidden. As projects progress, these lessons can be discovered within each individual through the artistic process which naturally enhances learning.
