It's back to school and I am SO EXCITED! It's true. I am ready for students to arrive. I unpacked my new supplies, rearranged my desks, put up bulletin boards, set up studio centers, planned out my curriculum, updated my syllabus, and organized activities for the first few days of school. But that's not what I'm excited for...
I'm excited for learning. Student directed learning. Discovery. Never stop learning because life never stops teaching.
I'm excited for risk taking. Try something new. Don't listen to the dream crushers; try something ridiculously irrational.
I'm excited for ART. Create something. Have it mean something. Make something personal. Who cares if it's good or bad! Who says it's good or bad?! Just make art.
So GET EXCITED! Learn something new. Take a risk. Make some art.
