Just a collection of weird pictures taken from my cell...usually from a moving vehicle.
School is out, students and teachers have gone home or on holiday, the yearbook got finished (thank goodness!), I checked out of school on Monday finally, and I'm officially off for the summer. I've decided once again to entirely revise my curriculum, which I can do with impunity because I'm just the art teacher and art isn't important in the big NCLB scheme of things. I'm already excited about introducing art concepts and mixing it up with large doses of art history--in which I have a minor--and integrating some geometry through tesselations, perspective drawing, and polyhedra; and science through experiments with color theory and light. Should be interesting...might get a little language and literature in there too. The kids will be writing as well, every day, and reverse-engineering some of their projects. They may not like it, but they are going to work next year!
