The ARTS are Alive and Well in some schools! I’d like to applaud the work of the teachers and students of St. Alphonsus Fine Arts School in Calgary, Alberta! It is a ‘magical’ thing to step into your space! Pick up some more art ideas, please, people! And…Happy Valentine’s Day
I have such a passion for beautiful art in schools. Now that I am a guest teacher and the pressure is off…for assessment or data collection and recording, accountability and frustrating meetings…I am able to simply pleasure in the TEACHING and make observations and soak beautiful moments up…slurp them up…magical moments spring up easily these days. I would like to give credit to the wonderful teachers who guided these activities, but I do not know their names…so, for the anonymous teachers who lead your students to beautiful experiences, I applaud you! Perhaps these products will inspire other teachers to the PROCESS…the part of art that is everything! Annie Smith would have highest regard for the fact that so much of this work is rooted in art history!
