Just about ready for the new school year. This will be my first year as an art teacher. I have been teaching elementary school for 13 years, including many an art lesson. But this will be different. Five periods a day of art classes coming and going, kindergarten through fifth grade. I can't wait.I put a mural at the entrance to the room, and continued it onto the back wall. It feels like stepping into a painting. My hope is that it will creat a slight shift in awareness as we enter the room, readying us for artmaking.
