This is not your typical art teacher blog.This is a humor blog. You will not find cool lesson plans or pictures of student art work here. There are many other (better) blogs out there where you can find that sort of thing. Here you will be given a glimpse into the everyday life of an elementary art teacher. This blog is not safe for children.
Happy New Year! I have no idea what 2013 has in store, but I do know that I have a new toy that I'm thrilled to play around with! Mr. ATHG surprised me with a Bamboo Pen and Touch Tablet by Wacom.* I installed all sorts of fun software last night, and tonight I've been messing around for a couple of hours, trying this baby out! I foresee some illustrated Art Teachers Hate Glitter posts in 2013...
Oh, and in case you missed it, and you might have, because I didn't discuss it much (with the timing of it, it just didn't seem appropriate), ATHG was again nominated as Art Ed Blog of the Year over at The Art of Education. While I didn't make it to the Top 10 this year, I was honored to be one of the 20 finalists. Thank you to all who voted.
I hope you all had a lovely holiday season and are looking forward to
what 2013 has to offer. I'm excited for some changes that are happening
around here this year and a great opportunity that has come my way that I
can't wait to share with you all.
*To those of you who know me IRL, it wasn't all potato mashers and windshield wipers over here after all.
(I received no compensation for this post, and all opinions expressed are my own. I'm just really, really psyched about my new toy and can't wait to show it off.)
