So today is sort of bitter sweet. I didn’t really think about it till now but its going to be sad tonight. It is going to be my last art show here at the school. I have been working here for 3 years and have worked really hard to make the art program into what it is today. When I first came into the art room the closet was filled with googly eyes and puffy paint and now I have students that are excited to see art at real museums because they see pieces they have learned about and know the artist and the movement. There are always bumps along the way but the art show is always a really rewarding night. To see all the work up together and see the kids so excited about the work they did, is really exciting. You get so attached to students when you see them almost everyday for 3 years. It is going to be hard to leave them at the end of the year. I feel really proud of the work I did here. I love teaching art. I may be a blogger but first and foremost my 40+ hours a week I am an art teacher and I am really going to miss that next year.
Here are just a few snapshots of the show…
