Trish Duebber is new Coordinator of Youth Programs at Boca Raton Museum Art School
The Ohio native brings with her a unique professional skill set of experiences as an arts educator and administrator, and a passion for advocating for arts education.

BOCA RATON, FLA.- The Boca Raton Museum Art School is starting 2018 by welcoming a new member to its staff. Trish Duebber has joined the team at the school on Palmetto Park Road as the new Coordinator of Youth Programs. The Ohio native brings with her a unique professional skill set of experiences as an arts educator and administrator, and a passion for advocating for arts education. In her new station, Duebber will oversee afterschool and weekend classes and workshops for youth, as well as the school’s popular Summer Art Camp.

The Art School has created the new position of Coordinator of Youth Programs to enrich and expand afterschool and summer programs for children and teenagers. The aim is not to duplicate in-school art lessons, but to provide studio art experiences not necessarily available in school. This includes developing program that will prepare students to apply to specialized arts middle and high schools as well as college. Duebber is uniquely qualified in this endeavor.

“I taught Advanced Placement Art in Cincinnati,” Duebber shares. “But I realized that I could do more for students as an administrator who supported the arts than as a teacher.” Duebber earned her Administration Certification and Superintendent Certification from Xavier University, adding to the Masters of Art Education she had already completed there and the Bachelor of Fine Art degree she earned at the Art Academy of Cincinnati. She went on to become the Assistant Principal and Principal at area middle and high schools before relocating to South Florida.

During her tenure, she saw many education districts cutting arts funding – a nationwide trend that has unfortunately not bypassed South Florida. But Duebber is quick to point out that arts education is critical for students who hope to have a future in the workforce. “Businesses are seeking to hire people who have arts backgrounds – creative thinkers,” she says. “As more tasks become computerized, trends are shifting towards hiring more people who can bring new perspectives to solving problems. And that’s exactly what students gain by having the freedom to create art.”

Currently, the Art School offers afternoon and weekend classes for youth, pre-teens, and teens in comics, drawing, fashion couture sewing, figure drawing, painting, photography, and pottery. Taught by professional artists, the classes are designed to reach multiple types of intelligences and learning styles. In each session, students have opportunities to build on their skills and create something they are proud of. Duebber will also be developing relationships with local arts educators, administrators, and parents to better determine how the Art School can best serve the needs and interests of the children.

“We are expanding our offerings for students who are building portfolios to enter competitive art programs,” Duebber says of her plans for her new role. “But my most important goal is to make sure that the Art School is a place where every child feels that they can belong, express themselves creatively, and thrive.”
