Welcome to my new blog!
Welcome to my new blog and my first post! I am a high school art teacher who has been blogging my own journal for 4 years. In my Art Journal Blog, I have been adding some occasional posts about my art class projects and thought that I would try to keep the two journals separate. I'm sure they will overlap some, but I have recently stumbled on other Art Teacher blogs that I am excited to start keeping up with! I plan to go back through my Art Journal Blog, and find the posts about classroom projects and add to this blog. That is going on my to do list for this summer though. This year is coming to an end in 2 weeks, so I have a lot to do over the next 2 weeks.
I have been teaching for 28 years and I really wish that I had this technology years ago. I would say over these 28 years, the invention of the digital camera and the internet have been my favorite changes to teaching over the years! Plus this year my school district installed a smart board in my classroom, so that is becoming another one of my favorite tools to teach with! (besides paints, markers, colored pencils, etc.)
So, for now, I will be looking for old blog posts and pictures of projects and spending lots of time looking at other art teacher blogs. Along the way, I hope to meet some art teachers and get some cool ideas for class projects!
