Time to Teach

12/28/12: I forgot to share with you all that I have been doing these last many months! As a mom, teacher, artist and musician, I spread myself across many interests, but not all at once! Before and after musical numbers at church and doing homework with the kids, I have been teaching a lot of art this year. From 5 year olds to 18 year olds, I have been discussing the paintings, prints and pastels created by Mary Cassatt.  This included a project and art history for girls at my church and a school-wide art lesson with project at our local elementary school. I love the look children get when they discover this is something they can do – that they have something to say that will be heard. Each project is unique and says more in color and shape about the artist than all the words they could combine. I am so grateful for the opportunity to teach Visual Arts.
