Summer 2019 - I am featured in Urban Family Magazine about my work as an Artist & Art Educator

“Ultimately, as a teacher, supporting my students and helping them to achieve their full artistic potential is my primary goal and focus. I help the student achieve their potential in way that fits each student individually. I am available as a mentor o my student and facilitator of learning and help guide them through their projects. I help to encourage them not only as an educator, but through my real-life experience as a working artist. Through this, I provide them with the necessary tools to unleash an exploration of ideas and thoughts behind their work. This is a collaborative experience between myself and my students and is essential for them to achieve their goals as artists.” - Gloria Carnevale


March 19, 2019 - I will be presenting about the concept behind my recent artwork at PechaKucha Night during Shenzhen Creative Week

PechaKucha Nights are informal and fun gatherings where creative people get together and share their ideas, works, thoughts, holiday snaps -- just about anything, really -- in the PechaKucha 20x20 format.

October 27, 2018 - We're Presenting on "Padlet for Process" @ EdTechGZ

Presenters: Gloria Carnevale, Miranda Godkin and Jennifer Nicklas 

The International School of Nanshan Shenzhen's Arts department have been using Padlet for their IB MYP Arts Process Journals for several years, and would like to share this experience with you! Using the paid Padlet backpack version, this has allowed for greater student agency, unlocking even more in-depth features. Join our Arts leaders and teachers,  Gloria Carnevale and Miranda Godkin, Head of Arts, as we share and explore Padlet as a process journalling tool. From documenting conceptual and technical progress to developing reflection, critical analysis, and critiquing skills, Padlet has helped to enhance the journaling process and provide a digital alternative to help match our student's needs. 


October 19, 2018 - November 16, 2018 - My students and I curated ISZAF “Transient in Motion” a professional artist exhibition in Shenzhen.

ISZAF Transient in Motion began with a challenge, where artists were tasked to create artworks inspired by the quote “All change is not growth, as all growth is not movement” by Ellen Glasgow. This quote alludes to the idea of movement and shadow, through both emotion and motion. We curated this show by examining each art piece’s use of value, variety and vividness. The artworks of 11 artists whose artworks best represented the main concepts of the show have been selected to create an engaging experience for you to connect with and enjoy.

ISZAF《Transient in Motion》从一个挑战开始,艺术家们的创作灵感来自Ellen Glasgow的一句名言“所有的变化不是增长,所有的增长也不是运动”。这句话映射了运动和阴影的概念,通过情感,静态和动态。我们通过衡量每件艺术品的价值、多样性和生动性来策划这次展览。11位艺术家的作品都代表了展览的主要理念,其中最优秀的作品被选中,为您创造一场视觉的盛宴,让你与艺术品交流并享受其中。

January 12-22, 2018 - Organization and Curation of the Kuku Chai International Youth Art Exhibition 2018

I planned, organized and curated this exhibition along side Brittan Aebischer through  ISZAF. Please read below for details. Media links are below as well. 

Featuring 6 prominent international schools within the city of Shenzhen, the Kuku Chai International Youth Art Exhibition is a group show featuring foreign and international students of all ages 7-18. In collaboration with one of Southern China’s most infamous female visual artists, kuku Chai, students were asked to respond to her work focusing on Kuku Chai’s themes of traditional and contemporary Chinese landscapes, animals, birds, and buildings, while using any medium of their choice. Ten students from each school, of all ages, were selected by their respective art teachers to be represented in this show. It is through the call and response between Kuku Chai and the students, including the reinterpretation of KuKu Chai’s visual themes by the students that makes this exhibition unique and iconic; especially with this exhibition being held in the multi-national and dynamic city of Shenzhen. We invite you to view this amazing work and the poignant visual dialogue between the students and KuKu Chai.

 

Participating Schools: 
BASIS International School (BASIS), International School of Nanshan Shenzhen (ISNS), QSI International School of Shenzhen (QSI)
Shenzhen International Foundation College (SIFC), Shen Wai Longang International School (SLIS), Shen Wai International School, Shenzhen (SWIS)

Featured in Shenzhen Daily: Canadian enjoys teaching art in Shenzhen

Carnevale said to excel at teaching art is to help students with any project that allows them to express themselves, letting students find out their preferred artistic discipline.

“Just because you can’t draw well doesn’t mean you can’t be a good artist,” she said. “You might excel at graphic arts on a computer, abstract art, print-making, or sculpture. Any kind of project that can encourage students to find out which art medium suits them is the best because it helps them gain confidence to pursue it.”
