Welcome to Art with Meyers!

Hello, and welcome to my blog. My name is Erin McCrea Meyers, and I have been an art educator at High Point since 1999, and Art Department Chair since 2013. I feel so fortunate to be able to blend my love of art with my passion for teaching. Please check in now and then to take a look at what we are doing in our world class art department! I can be contacted at emeyers@hpregional.org

I currently teach Crafts 1, Crafts 2, and Fine Art 3 and 4 Portfolio, Independent Study in Fine Art (Level 5), and Fine Art Sculpture (click the links to the right for more info).

Corrin also studied Honors Art History with Ms. Hodgins and took the AP Art History exam. Corrin is off to Delaware College of Art and Design, where she plans on majoring in Illustration.

Fine Art Sculpture Class '13-14

As I reflect on the past year, I would like to honor and celebrate a profoundly special group of young ladies that I had the pleasure of teaching. They are the Fine Art Sculpture '13-14 class: Veronica Bove, Chelsea Francavilla, Megg Reich, Amber Frey, My 3 Sarahs - Chappell, Little, and Eddy, Corrin Bishop, Maria Iacopelli, Claudia Fasino, and for a brief period, Tryna Rose Nichlois. I could not have asked for a more talented, creative and open-minded group. Not knowing what to expect from a course called Fine Art Sculpture, these ladies dove into their personal explorations of art, expression, and reflection, and carried out every challenge I presented to them with courage and grace. I will never forget the work that was created (along with all the glorious risks, failures and victories involved), the collaboration and synergy among the group, and the honest and intelligent discussions we shared. I am sorry to see them go, but so excited to see the amazing things they have yet to do!

Katherine McCole Visits HP Artists

A special thank you to former HP art student Katherine McCole ('12), who came in to speak to the Fine Art Portfolio students about her college experience in the SCCC Fine Art Department and Montclair State University. Katherine is currently studying to become an art teacher (hooray!). She showed slides and brought samples of her wonderful artwork to share with the students.

HP Art Takes a Trip to Philadelphia!

Rocky, along with me, Jake Aprile and Ms. Hodgins. Yo, Adrian!
On March 28, we took a one-day trip to attend the Philadelphia Museum of Art and the Barnes Foundation. The students enjoyed many classical works of art that they had only ever seen in books or online. They had museum tours, too. We also visited some of the famous landmarks of Philadelphia. Sorry the cheese steaks didn't work out, guys!
