The time is finally here, SUMMER VACATION!! I would be lying if I said that I wasn’t ready for a break. Don’t get me wrong, I adore all my students. Really, truly, honestly I do! There comes a time every year though, when I need a break to collect myself and regain my strength. I need a little time to miss them and then I will be already to start a new year with fresh ideas and new energy!
What am I saying! I don’t actually get a vacation….I work all summer at our school day camp! Bahhh, what a short lived dream I just had. I do get to work with the kids in a different way. At camp it is a little more relaxed and I have WAY more fun because I get to be a bit more silly and build some wonderful friendships that being a “teacher” doesn’t always allow.
I have a few goals for the summer that go beyond my usual reading list, weekend get-aways, and family get togethers. I REALLY, REALLY, REALLY want to focus on getting myself into a “create my own artwork” mode! I keep having this great dream where I am selling my own work and getting lots and lots of requests for artwork! It makes me smile just thinking about it. I also have this dream that one day I will have my own studio where I can teach private art groups during the summer. I think a two week summer camp style class in my studio through out the summer would be great! What you do you think? I am not sure if I could get enough kids/parents interested in this, but I am gonna keep investigating and dreaming about it!
