Hello! The countdown has started for my students' Art Exhibit and these are days at which I usually start disappearing due to so much work. General logistics, project preparation and mounting for my 250 students is done entirely by myself, from project selection, to getting organized with the Systems and Maintenance departments in the school, to designing the invitation and getting it to parents, and SO many other things. I also include QR codes on the project titles which take the viewers to student videos explaining each project. Of course, I get asked for EACH of my 250 students to appear in one of the videos, so this is a TON of organization for me to do when recording, as well as a TON of video editing. This is all done while students are still working on projects. There will be 19 projects displayed in total, 3-4 different projects per grade I have this semester. I will be including pictures of project titles in my next post, as well as some other things which may interest other Art Teachers out there.
Even with all this going on, I am committed to improving my artwork and doing whatever I can, whenever I can in order to move forward with my personal projects. Here are some sketchbook entries I did last week.
In this blog you'll find information and resources to help you improve your art skills. I also share tips and encouragement that will help you stay happy and productive as your journey progresses.
