Well Hello New Year!

Whether you’re a teacher still enjoying his or her winter break — or you’ve already made the jump back into school — now is a great time to consider how you can make art a foundational part of your classroom curriculum in the coming months.

Perhaps you might consider setting a simple goal of incorporating one art experience per month into a lesson you already plan to teach, for the remainder of the school year. You could continue this creative trend by involving yourself in some art experiences every month through your summer break. Might I be so bold as to suggest that you sign up for one of my Professional Development courses through Fresno Pacific University? You’ll learn a lot about incorporating art into your classroom and you’ll have fun while doing it! (Click on “Courses for Credit” at the top of this page.) When fall comes around and brings with it a fresh new school year, you’ll be prepared and confident, ready with the skills you developed while working with me over the summer.

This could be the start of something wonderful and very creative…
