Lots of art things

I feel like adding a new post, but I don’t really know what to say. So I’ll show you some things that have been happening in my little sketchbook lately. I didn’t really crop these photos, so you could see the drawings in the context of the book

Also prismacolor.  Also while driving to San Antionio (it's a long drive).

Other things happening in my life: I’ve recently gotten into watching Parks and Recreation on Netflix. And by recently I mean yesterday. It is getting funnier and funnier with each episode, as these shows often do. It has been entertaining me while I work on putting together artwork for the upcoming PTA art auction. Each class is producing an artwork, and each student paints 2-3 squares. I put the squares together and viola.

A masterpiece appears. And yes, it’s kind of a lot of work for me. But at least it is mindless work. So I have been watching a lot of Parks and Recreation this weekend.

The above is usually something I would put in my other blog, devoted to my art educator-self, but I think I will let that blog rest for now. I am trying to not put my identity and worth into my how I do as a teacher, and having a whole blog about it wasn’t helping. So I’m going to consolidate things.

And to close, here is an awesome owl drawing done by a 2nd grader this week.

  1. Great art!…. and especially while you were driving (riding?) to San Antonio. I’m sure the car was moving – with jerks and bumps. Wow. You’ve inspired me. We’re going to OK City this week, and I just may doodle on the way. !!!

    So glad you blogged.
    I love it when you blog.
    (But no pressure to do it all the time….
