So, what did I learn?
- First, I learned some things from Super Blog-Star, Mr. E, that I can do to make this Blog more interesting or more helpful to others. I hope you will offer comments to help me grow in this area as well.
- I learned fun art-making tricks (cheap and easy) from some of you and vendor-sponsered educators to incorporate more processes into my classroom
|Printmaking meets under glaze!|
|Marble paper with chalk pastel, water and a plastic knife!|
|Dale Pohl did an amazing community printmaking (free-you know-non ticketed) session. She uses acrylic paint and sponge brushes (aka Cheap & Easy)! The kids can build little neighborhoods by printing on each other's papers! Limitless applications!!!|
- I learned how to move into the "advanced class" using Artsonia's new features from Susan Bivona and Theresa McGee. I also met the Artsonia folks in person (sorry the picture is fuzzy) and some other amazing Artsonia teachers who have "the fever"!

I could keep going on but unlike some bloggy-art teachers I know, I actually need to sleep and before I can do that this Mommy needs to go play x-box-kennects boxing with her kiddos (4 and 7). They can't wait to knock me out! I'm cool with that because this week was a knock out too! Peace.
