Many changes have happened since I last posted a blog. A new chapter has begun as I start the school year in a new state (hello Colorado!) and in my very own art room. It feels as if we have been on a roller coaster the past few weeks, but things are starting to settle down and I am gearing up for the school year with my students. I am truly excited to start the year with them and I want to make sure my students have everything they need to succeed, that is why I just posted the project Shape, Color & Carpet in the Art Room...Oh My! on DonorsChoose.org. Please take a moment to check it (and other projects) out. If you know someone or an organization looking to donate to help students, schools and the arts, I would appreciate you passing along my project! Also, if you give to my classroom by August 2, 2014, your donation will be doubled thanks to DonorsChoose.org. Just enter the code INSPIRE on the payment page and you'll be matched dollar for dollar (up to $100). If you chip in to help my students, you'll get awesome photos and our heartfelt thanks (Bonus!) Thanks so much for taking the time to read and check out my project.
