Because I finished my master’s program this past summer, my goal for the year was to spend the equivalent time I would have spent driving to/from and IN class making art.  My plan was to stay late at school and my classroom would double as an artist studio.


That hasn’t happened yet…and we’re almost half way through the school year.  If I stay late, it’s to work on school work, lesson plans, art displays, etc.

While I haven’t met my goal of making art every Monday and Wednesday afternoon (maybe I was boxing myself in too much?), I have been creating!

I have started an altered book, and I worked on a small commission.  Here is the commission: Lakehouse, 2012.

I just attended the Georgia Art Educators Association Fall Professional Learning Conference, and I have a renewed energy to create my own artwork.  I love learning and fellowship-ing with other art teachers from across the state!!  Check us out: GAEA
