I am a member of a group of art teachers on Facebook and it has been so inspiring to see everyone's photos of their classrooms...shoot, after not having a room last year I am just excited to HAVE one this year...so it doesn't bother me that I haven't been able to get in there and start organizing...all in due time. So I focused that energy on organizing and decorating my own artistic space..a place where I can refuel and stay inspired so that I can be the best for my students. I spent my last real day of summer vacation today in my pajamas hanging out in my studio space and it was a great way to end my summer!
One site that I have used a few times is http://www.dermandar.com, a free site for creating and posting panoramic and wide angle views. I know that there are other apps, site and programs...this is just another one. I haven't used it in a while and I had a little trouble getting my panorama to open up on my computer but when I viewed it on my phone it worked fine. Go figure. Anyway, I created a view of my studio using this site, just scroll over the image to see a wider view of the studio, taken from just six photos.
No doubt, there will be posts about my new school and lessons forthcoming...I used to post to a separate blog here on my site dedicated only to teaching...not sure if I am going to put that one back up or just include it in this here blog. But for now, this entry is about my creative space. Hopefully I can post some pics of my new classroom later in the week once I get in there!
Below are some additional pics of my new creative home, the theme is black, white with bits of pink and sparkle. Happy last day of summer to me! Yay!
