All day today my students asked me why I was out at the end of last week. I was happy to share that I was attending and presenting at the Art Educator's of New Jersey Annual Conference. It was great to be surrounded by art teachers from all around New Jersey and hear about the wonderful things they were doing in their classrooms. I was able to listen to fantastic speakers and take part in exciting workshops. It was fun to be a student again. On Friday, I presented a hands-on workshop with another PHS art teacher about Visual Journaling. We shared some of our journal projects with other art teachers and they had the opportunity to create a journal to take home.
"The arts celebrate multiple perspectives. One of their large lessons is that there are many ways to see and interpret the world."
