Teaching projects for November

I have a number of teaching projects scheduled for November that I am very excited about. I will be leading a brand new Shelby Elementary School art club- our first project will be clay face jugs. I’m also going to do a bookmaking workshop with 4th and 5th graders at Coral Ridge Elementary School through the Kentucky Museum of Art and Craft. Also through KMAC, I will be starting a teaching artist residency at the Kentucky School for the Blind. The first session is tomorrow and I am nervous and excited!  I’ve been drawing line patterns all over paper plates with puff paint today for the little kids (Kindergarten-3rd grade) so they can feel the lines and we can embellish the designs with color and then fill with beans and bells and then turn them into maracas and tambourines! I’m going to bring in my acoustic guitar and when we are done we will have a sweet jam session. I’ve got a number of other projects in mind and will experiment and see what happens! I hope to come away from this experience a better artist and a better educator.
