Teaching Art to Kids

Ahh the first day of school is almost over, this is my time to eat lunch and prepare for my last classes of the day.  I was actually going to try and post to my School Blog but wasn’t feeling inspired.  Then I started thinking about inspiration and the lack of it in my life right now.  I stumbled upon this youtube video in my search for ideas.  Let me know what you think of it.

I am pretty excited to start fresh with my students.  I am ready to inspire and engage the artistic juices!  Now if I can infuse that idea in my own personal art making.


I forgot how busy summer is

Mixed Media 6"x6" Let Your Dreams Take Flight

It is hard to believe that it is August and I haven’t posted to my blog at all!  I am so busy during the summer playing with my friends and basking in the carefree and very flexible schedule I have during the summer months.    I haven’t even thought about my blog because I have been out dancing with my ladies a couple nights a week or laying in the sun or enjoying sushi on Sunday nights.  I should feel bad about the neglect of my blog, but I have been having way too much fun.  I think it was a much needed break to re-energize my soul and soak up the sun!

There are only two more weeks left before I have to enter back into my school schedule.  It makes me sad, I wish I could find a way to still have a more relaxed work week.  It is so hard to be in school all day and let go of my “responsibilities” and still go out with the girls and be able to get up at 6 a.m.   Maybe I can compromise with myself……stay tuned.

I will have to get into my classroom soon and start figuring out what I will teach this year.  I am pretty sure that will be put off until the last moment, I just don’t want to be stuck in my classroom when I might be missing out on something fun in the sun!
