I love my job...

Two weeks before school started, I found a job.  I am a new elementary school art teacher and I love what I do!  Here is a piece from one of my kindergarten students. We studied "Art in the Park" by looking at Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte by Georges Seurat. Then the kiddos drew images of themselves playing at the park.

This kid is SO talented. I don't even know his name--- and no he didn't put it on the paper like I asked him to.  Oh well-- it doesn't matter.  I can't wait to see what he does next. This drawing is inspired by all the playground equipment at my school.  Even though I teach in a trailer that is falling apart and smells like mildew, the kids have nice playground equipment-- as you can see in this meticulous kindergarten rendering.

Enjoy! There is nothing more precious, real or honest than children's art.
