Sometimes, I forget I’m teaching and get into my own artwork. I think, “These kids are really getting in the way, wish I didn’t have to teach !” Haha, no, I don’t want to stop teaching art.
I stay after school and finish painting or coloring. The fun part for me is watching my kids’ reaction to the work. We have frequent debates about who has more fun in the artroom, the teacher or the students. Most students say they do and a lot of kids want to become art teachers or artists when they grow up because they are having lots of fun creating and playing with the materials. Yippee! The world would be such a better place if we all played and created, don’t you think?
