This past week has been interesting to say the least....as many of you know, I'm an art teacher by day and have been teaching for 16 years. Our district is purposing significant cuts to art, music and library. I will still have a job but will travel between two buildings.....you have no idea what this really means. Six full time art teachers, 6 music and 6 librarians will be unemployed.
So, my sketchbook has suffered because I didn't give it time this week....
But when I did allocate the time, sketching was relaxing........ Today I am out in the studio making beads.....spring is my inspiration yet again.
I hold onto Hopefullness that those in charge will see the light.
Just imagine how gosh darn boring school is going to become for all your children.....the arts are vital for so many reasons. It is a place where being the best isn't the goal........ its really about self expression, exploration, experimentation, critical thinking..............okay, I'll get off my soap box :)
