This site is where I will make generalizations about teaching art. Stories and complaints and successes and the like will be included. My purpose is not to give you tutorials or lesson plans, but to speak about my own experiences in teaching.
My experiences may or may not be similar to yours. Feel free to state your opinions and share your own experiences as they relate to teaching art–or being a student of art (blogs aren’t a thing teenagers read, are they?).
I teach 6-12 graders at a small, private school. It’s a lot of classes. I’m busy. I do two art shows a year. I run a one week summer camp. I have my own two kids. It’s exhausting.
Is it rewarding? Hell, yes! I love teaching art!
