Looking for studio space?

The former New Boone Artist Collective (we recently had to close due to rising rent) are putting a new studio community together with all Tyler alums on Frankford Ave, a block past Lehigh, in an old roofing office, which is getting renovated for studio use. We are looking for 3 more people to fill out the studios.  Some details:

  • pricing is 50 cents a square foot for personal studio
  • kitchen with microwave and oven
  • 3 bathrooms, one with a shower
  • communal area perfect for potential public projects/events
    lots of communal storage
  • extremely large rooftop perfect for crazy messes/experiments
  • all furniture in this old office space is free, whatever isn’t wanted will be removed
  • plans for shared community woodshop
  • has parking lot
  • for those who take public transit, a stop for the 5 bus is outside on the corner

If you’re looking for a studio space, contact Anne Pagana at anne.c.pagana@gmail.com.

Your Voice Counts

The Philly Artist Census is the first in a series of surveys that Philly Stewards will be deploying in 2018 and 2019, in an attempt to get an accurate picture of the resources, challenges and livelihoods of practicing visual artists in Philadelphia.

Our motivation to assemble this information is to clarify myths from truths about the greater Philly artist community. While PS members might occupy several different artist communities in Philadelphia, we fully acknowledge that our membership does not represent the Philadelphia artist community as a whole. Much of our effort during the 3 months this survey is live will be to spread notice of our survey far-and-wide in Philadelphia, hoping to get as many responses as possible.

Please feel free to share this survey with Philly-based artists you know.

Don’t Forget to Complete Your eSFFs!

Be sure your voice is heard

Don’t forget to complete your electronic Student Feedback Forms by Thursday, May 3, 2018.

Students who complete all their online course evaluations this semester can view selected results of course evaluations when they register for classes next fall.

Scores will be provided in four categories, including whether the instructor provides useful feedback about exams and projects, applies grading policies fairly, teaches the course well and whether students learned a great deal in the class.

All student feedback is treated seriously and confidentially. To preserve student anonymity, course sections with fewer than five people enrolled are generally not included in the e-SFF system and instructors will not receive a report.

Instructors do not receive feedback about the course until after all grades have been submitted for the semester, and no identifying information is associated with responses in any reports. After grades have been submitted and student evaluation forms processed, instructors receive their SFF reports. This report contains a summary of the rating data and listing of all the comments (anonymously made by the students in the course) to the open-ended questions on the evaluation form.

Student evaluations and surveys provide valuable feedback to Temple instructors and play an important role in reappointment, merit, promotion and tenure considerations. In aggregate, the data are used to help assess teaching effectiveness across university departments, schools colleges.

Students can access e-SFFs either via the TUPortal or directly at http://esff.temple.edu through Thursday, May 3.
