I want to thank everyone who has ventured over to this little ole blog recently. I am truly humbled by all the positive responses. And here I was on the verge of calling it quits this past summer. I am so glad I stuck through it.
I’ve been meaning to visit all your great new (to me) art education blogs and respond to comments, but I’ve been busy packing for a move this weekend. I wanted to take a moment though to tell you all that I greatly appreciate your responses and support.
Many people have asked if they can share my blog and my 20 Things An Elementary Art Teacher Will Never Tell You. I’m all for sharing, provided, of course, proper credit is given.
I have many great (and humorous) posts brewing so I hope this move goes smoothly and quickly so I can finally find some time to sit down and collect my thoughts.

I do love your posts! They are so true 🙂
I, too, love your posts, OBG. As a former music teacher and current Grade two teacher who happens to be passionate about teaching “real” art, I totally appreciate the honesty and the humour. BTW, have you in the US of A ever heard of Emily Carr? Her art is well worth checking out, and really lends itself to cool trees-and-sky projects in all kinds of media.
Good luck with the move. I'm posting as anonymous because that's the only one I can figure out, but my name's Catherine and I teach in rural British Columbia.
your blog just kept me laughing for hours. I'm an Art Teacher as well and I admire your spirit to tell it like it is! I have one of those “lesson plan” sites with student work… but I so appreciated the honestly (and humor) in your site. I cant wait to see what else you have up your sleeve!
Thanks for sharing your blog! I am also an art teacher with one of those lesson plan sites. Thank you for keeping us laughing and waiting for your next post. if you're interested in checking out another one of those lesson plan sites, please check out mine!
