This school year ended with an amazing student Art Show (once again). I am excited for next year and the great things the kids will come up with. I have only a few days left of summer vacation before starting with professional development courses, which means I have to begin with the long range planning for all the grades I will be having next year!
For me, this means not only selecting the projects that will help me fulfill curriculum requirements, but organizing them in a sequence that makes sense for students. I rarely repeat projects, except for the ones that I feel my students enjoyed and learned from most. This means a lot more work, but it is worth it!
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.
Feel free to send me an
email, leave a comment on the site and/or reach out on social media. I'd love to connect!
Hope you enjoy
and find this useful!
