So, you all know that I have a student teacher and she has taken over my classes, so I have been working on cleaning up things in my room etc. This week was the week of letters of recommendation, fun fun! Also, I ran across a new Challenge on Flickr, the Marcus Ranum Challenge. You use an image picked from stock photos from Marcus Ranum and create something great. So of course I decided to do this, I had to create a deviantart account to download photos which is fine, I like the website, I get tons of brushes and ideas from it. Here is my link http://artteach13.deviantart.com/#. I have posted the challenge photos in my classroom. I think it is important for your students to know that you are still doing art, that you aren't just an art teacher! I also think it is important to have the students see that you are also trying to grow as an artist!
