Welcome to Mrs. Siccone's Art Page!

Welcome to an exciting year of art! My name is Mrs. Nicoletta Siccone, and this is a picture of me with a sculpture of one of my favorite artists, Vincent van Gogh. The photograph was taken at an amazing place called "Grounds for Sculpture," in nearby Hamilton, NJ. I currently teach art at Greenville and Ramtown Schools. I began my teaching career over 28 years ago in the Jersey City Public Schools. My undergraduate degree is from Montclair State University, and my Master’s Degree is in Art Education, Kean University. I also hold a Supervisory Certificate in Art Supervision and Administration.

I often have students create art inspired by literature as well as fine art and world cultures. This picture shows a student's sculpture inspired by Drew Daywalt's book, "The Day the Crayons Quit."

 

I love to create art in many forms! I am drawn to the reinvention of mundane objects, and so, in the art room at Ramtown School you will find masterpieces painted on old chairs, art painted on house windows, colorful birdhouses, and even a bicycle wheel sculpture! The idea of reinvention inspired me to create jewelry from metal zippers, and I now feature them in galleries and markets throughout NY/NJ.  

 

I am originally from the mile-square city of Hoboken, NJ. My husband Anthony and I have one daughter, Sophia, and a maltese-poodle named Stella.As a first generation Italian-American, I am a native speaker of the Italian language, as well as the dialect of my family’s hometown in Puglia, Italy. I am passionate about art and travel, and have enriched art lessons with my experiences in Japan, Italy, France, and other countries. Recently, I visited Greece with my family. I hope you enjoy this short video: I am standing at the top of the Acropolis in Athens, with the Parthenon behind me. 

 

 

I look forward to a great year of art with your child! Please feel free to reach out to me with any questions about your child's art education.
