New things for the new year...

i have decided to do a blog for Art for Elementary Teachers. i will add information for teachers such as places for them to find lesson plans, artist information, art events, pictures of their work, and many other informational items they can use in class. it will be more for finding information than for use in the classroom but i think it will be fun and educational as well. i am considering having the students post intelligent comments for extra credit. what do you think?

i will also be teaching a new class at the college next semester, Art Appreciation, so for the next several weeks i will be writing curriculum. i already have some ideas for this class...now to get them on paper and worked out for the classroom. this class will take lots of research and will be time consuming in that i will be putting up the weeks in power point for easier use.

and the next big thing, i am having surgery on December 17, 2007 so i will have to have my classes done, holiday shopping done and anything else i have to do before the 17th...fun, fun, fun!!

Speedy health to you Kelly! I think the teachers blog is an excellent idea! I know I have several friends that are teachers and I go to the classrooms for "visiting guest artist" day. They so love interacting with their teacher's expanded circle of art friends! And I know when I taught I would have LOVED a site like you describe!
