the "didda-guy".

its been too long since i posted some new pics... for those of you not connected via facebook.
here he is, in all his almost-2-year-old glory.
if you want to see more family pics, check out our photo album. (which is currently a bit out of date.)

finally, my son begins to look like me...

...but he's arguably cuter.

community arts day 2010.

last saturday, webster hosted the 33rd annual community arts day at webster schroeder high school.
...thats right, community arts day will always be older than me.

as always, the artwork on display 1st-12th grade was amazing. it is great to see the progression that our webster students follow during their years with us. i am proud of my students, and look forward to my son's progression during these years as well...

so, here's some pictures of my students' work from saturday. enjoy!

thoughts on teaching...

so my student teacher carrie bell's last day was today... we will all really miss her.

talking to carrie extensively in the past 6 weeks has made me really reflect on what i do and how i do it.
i feel so blessed to be able to work with young people who care so deeply about not only making great art, but being really good people... and who are dedicated to growth and to each other.
i feel lucky every day.

if you are reading this, chances are you are part of the reason i feel this way.
so, thanks.

we got to draw outside today in ap art, and before the end of class, took some great group pics of everyone together, holding up their big pastel self-portraits.
