I had my last day of teaching art yesterday, capped off with a frustrating bout of laryngitis. The kids were so funny. I could only whisper, so they would whisper right back. Too cute. Some were very concerned that I might not talk again. Given the quiet classrooms, I might keep my voice to myself a few days longer!
It was also my last day at Mountain View School, where I have taught for the past five years. It has been a wonderful school to work at, so supportive of the art program and very accommodating to me. Saying good-bye to the children was hard but Santa Barbara/Goleta is a very close-knit community and I know I'll see many of them again.
One of the benefits of working at only one school is that now I'll have the time to develop their art program a bit more. I'll also have more time for this blog, which means more lessons, more tips and more interaction with you guys...fellow art nuts!
Starting next week, I'll have free days so that means more blog posts. Here are some things to look forward to:
- Ceramic Mural Tutorials...all the details about making the beautiful ceramic murals that I have done in the past four years.
- Native American Art lessons
- Elephant Art Lessons
- Outlaws and Gunslingers Lessons
- Chameleons and Iguanas Art Lessons
- More management tips and so much more.
I'll be travelling back to Prince Edward Island the end of July for three weeks with my family and will close down the site for a few weeks. I'll be eating lobsters and playing lots of golf and won't be thinking too much of paint and pastels!
In August, Deep Space Sparkle will be getting a new "make-over". Darcy at Graphically Designing will be doing the transformation and I simply cannot wait to see what ideas she has up her creative sleeve.
So those are basically my intentions for the next few months...at least as far as Deep Space Sparkle goes! Hope you all have a wonderful and restful summer. Don't go away. I'll be right here getting you all set for next September!
