Gearing up for the school year always excites me. Ever since I was a kid I loved getting new school supplies, shoes, clothes, and a perfect metal lunch box! Now, I get to do that for my kids and I still love it. As an art teacher, I also get the privilege of planning classes and ordering supplies — I really do think this is my favorite time of year.
This semester I have cut my teaching schedule way down and am only offering one class for teens. I enjoyed all my teenagers last year and hope that many of them will return for more great skill building and advanced techniques.
Here’s the class info for Fall 2013:
