Description

Class Experience

Lora Danley (she/her):
I began formally teaching in college, and I have been teaching in some form or another ever since. I have a B.S. in Chemistry from MIT and an M.S. in Chemistry from UC Berkeley. I also have a B.F.A. In Computer Arts from the Academy of Art University. I have taught science, photography, writing, and improvisation to students of all ages and backgrounds. Along the way I have discovered that I have a natural ability to explain concepts and to engage students.  

I want students to be able to think creatively and to be curious about a topic, but I also want them to find learning to be fun and exciting. I try to stoke a student’s natural curiosity with activities, demonstrations, and examples. I find that students in my classroom are often willing to join in the discussion or to ask questions, even when their parents tell me that they won't be. I strive to make sure everyone is included in the discussion, however, so if a student is silent, I will engage them if necessary. Students often tell me that my passion for a subject is evident and contagious, and I am happy that I am able to help students to find the joy in learning.  

Melissa Quijano (she/her):
I teach classes focused on history and fashion. I believe that you can learn about history from a variety of lenses and vantage points, and fashion is one of them. Overall I'm a laid back teacher who likes to have fun with the content- that's why I have classes like "Meme History" where we study serious topics, like Imperialism and Communism, but with memes. I also have fun classes where we analyze Disney movies for their historical accuracy and where we sort historic figures into Hogwarts houses. My fashion design classes are built for students with interest levels from casual to passionate. If you just want to learn a new drawing skill all the way to looking at fashion as a career, I have you covered!  

I have a Bachelor's of Fine Arts Degree in creative writing with a minor in history from Brooklyn College and a Master's in Secondary Education (adolescent social studies) from the College of Staten Island, both part of the City University of New York system. I have also taken classes at institutions such as the Fashion Institute of Technology and Parsons the New School for Design. I was raised in NYC, and I now live with my fiance and four cats (my students know them as my TAs) in New Jersey. My hobbies include playing the Sims 4, travelling, making my own clothes, and writing science fiction. I am currently writing a book about the history of fashion in the United States from 1900-2019. 
INTRODUCTION TO PHOTOGRAPHY
The course will come with a short ebook.  Students will have an assignment every class and so should be prepared to shoot and edit the assignment and post it to the classroom page at least two hours before the class time.  The class may be taken with any type of camera, including an iPhone or even a disposable camera, however certain assignments will only be possible to complete if a student has a camera that can freeze and blur motion and can also blur the background.  Students who do not possess such a camera will have the option of an alternate assignment instead. 

FUNDAMENTALS OF FASHION DESIGN
For every class, students should have: paper (any kind), pencil, eraser, thin black marker (such as Ultra Fine Sharpie), colored pencils and markers. Students should have a variety of colors, including skin colors. For classes 9-11, students should also have chalk pastels and a white pencil.
6 hours per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
Introduction to Photography: 
We will be looking at age appropriate images which means the absence of displays of violence or nudity.

Fundamentals of Fashion Design: 
When I teach children fashion design, I have a very strict eye on body positivity. I know how toxic the industry is, and I make it a point to showcase a variety of bodies in class presentations. I also showcase designers like Christian Siriano who focus on inclusivity in fashion.
