I am one of your newbies.Thank you for your emails of welcome.

I have been teaching at my present private school in FL for 9 years and it has been my best job by far. Over the years our arts people have pushed HARD for recognition.  We have stressed how arts is essential for growth and development of critical thinking skills needed in the other subjects.The administration heavily supports the arts. We have 2 high school art teachers. My co- teacher does the ceramics classes and AP 3D.  I do Art 1 Foundations, Art 2 Foundations, 2D Design, 3D Design, Intermediate Drawing , Intermediate Painting, Studio Portfolio which is a mix of advanced students and hopefully 2D AP next year. It is a full deck schedule for sure. We had block for many years. Sadly we are now at 5o min. classes again. As a result I have had to cut my curriculum in order to fulfill the FL standards. You all know the drill. At least the arts still have a job in these hard times.

This month, the Middle school teacher and both of high school teachers will do an inservice for the school.It will be part Development of Art  in  from age 3 -16, drawing lesson and ceramics. We will end with a Power Point on Apps for the Mac and iPad. We are hoping that the faculty enjoys our workshop but also becomes aware of how hard our students work to develop thought concepts and interpret them using technical skills. We hope to do more inservices in the arts to promote us in the school and even involve parents in the workshops with the kids. Parents are our best alies to keep arts in the school so it is worth the extra effort.

Hi friends...I hope the new year is a great one for each of you! I am ending my first week and it's going to be another WOW year!

My friend, Jackie Ellett, is writing her dissertation (UGA) on passionate longevity in the field of art education, and wants to interview art educators from across the nation with 20+ years in the field. She is looking for folks in the Pacific and Western region, but contact her if you're SE or Eastern as well if you fit the criteria. Her dissertation will become a book, so get published and share your passion!

Please contact Jackie directly: or

Thanks so much!

Thanks for sharing Dana! I too was at the GA Professional Learning Fall Conference...really wonderful seeing so many inspirational art educators relaxing in the mountains! I presented on "Art with a Purpose", discussing service learning projects that earn money for charities, your student's and your art program. I also presented on critiquing strategies (my friend Tricia and I presented this together comparing elementary to secondary crit skills and successes!)
Holler if you're interested in any of these as well and I will gladly send you a hand-out!
Can't wait to hear about other state fall conferences!
Thanks again for your awesome blogspot Dana!!

Our Georgia Fall Conference was two weeks ago. It was a great conference set in the GA mountains and featured "Craft in America."

I presented a session on stencil-cut printmaking and made a blog for the session. If you are interested, please check it out:

Has anyone else attended a state conference this year?

I am an Inventor. So many teachers have asked me to get the word out about my product to all teachers. There are thousands of uses for Bag Bundle in the classroom setting for teachers and for students both in school and out of school. My website is and you may want a better understanding of how these work, so you can view
Thank you so much and I look forward to hearing from you! Lisa

I have lived here since 1967 and started at my high school in 2000. Before that I taught at the local university adjunct and workshops including Arrowmont in Gatlinburg TN. The profile pic was taken in France.

It is great to hear from you! How did you land a job in the Virgin Islands? Your profile picture makes me jealous.

We have one eye on the Atlantic for tropical storms here in the VI. My AP class is on their third project and basic and 2-D are working at a fast clip too. We have until Columbus Day and then the distractions begin...
