I saw this on Donna Downey's blog who saw it on where else, but Pinterest, of course! Doesn't it sum up why most of us blog? One of the reasons I started blogging was because I discovered that there were so many good art teacher blogs out there and I was getting so many good ideas from them, that I thought I should share some of my own. When I was going through college and first started teaching, the internet wasn't as chock full of so many good art teaching ideas. Plus, pages with images took so long to load.. remember that? How amazing would it have been to be able to have all these blogs right at my fingertips when I was just starting out? I mean, if I wanted some information about maskmaking, I would actually have to go to a library to get a book! LOL. The first site that I saw was the Incredible Art Department. I just took another look right now and saw that it has been around since 1994.
I have a bunch of art lessons from the past month or so that I have been saving up to show you. I will show them to you over the next month or so. As the year winds down, we have grade reports to write (of course), inventory to do, art rooms to clean up and other loose ends to tie up. On top of that, I'm in charge of the yearbook. The yearbooks have been printed and delivered. They are waiting in boxes ready to be distributed. I'm also in charge of Student Council and we just had our last middle school dance last night. Luckily I have today and Monday off of school to write grades and just relax. So things are wrapping up and I'm looking forward to summer. The day after school gets out (June 6) we are driving to Florida to go to Disneyland! So I will leave with this picture. My daughter is trying on her new bathing suit that Grandma gave her.
