Another Year Has Gone By

Art has always been a part of my life.  I remember being a little girl and crawling through this tiny door into our attic where my mom would paint in front of a window.  It's one of those very sweet, magical memories from my childhood.  

I took art in high school, and when I was forced with making a college career decision, I knew that art and photography had to be a part of it all.  I have the best of both worlds.  I love teaching truly and with every bone in my body.  There is a huge sense of relief and rightness in the world when I am in the classroom.  It doesn't feel like a job in the least bit.

That isn't to say that I don't looooove my summer breaks.  My body needs that time to shut down and spend time with my family being a mom first.  We are only a few short days away, and it has been a great week at school reminiscing and packing up our portfolios for the year.  Here are just a few of the incredible works of art my students created this year...enjoy and happy almost summer!
