"Don't find time for art, MAKE time for art."
I am going to keep reminding myself that. I have to. See...school started back today, and summer break has been awesome, but I am glad to be going back. Ever since I was a little kid, I have always loved school... been excited about the first days...as a student, and even now as the teacher. I woke up at 4am this morning ready to jump out of bed and start my day, which for the next few days will be teacher work days...which leads into teaching...and coaching...and clubs...and working out...and just basically my life. But I have to keep artin'.
I really do love teaching art...but...I love making my art. Many times as an art teacher it is hard to keep making your own art. To be frank, some folks don't think that you are an artist if you are a teacher.
I am an artist.
I am an art teacher.
I am both.
For all of my art teachin' friends out there, let's support each other, remember why we got into this gig in the first place.
Alright, now bring on the new school/art year!
