I just spent a wonderful weekend with other art teachers from all over the state of Michigan. I attended many seminars that were helpful and gave me great ideas for the classroom. I even was able to present at the Michigan Art Education Association conference this year. I presented about incorporating digital tools into the art classroom. It was really fun to see so many people interested in incorporating more technology into their classrooms! I am so excited that I was able to spend this time learning how to be the best teacher I can be.
If you attended my presentation and did not get a handout you will find the PDF attached below this post.
Artist Susan Share presented a really unique performance using books that she created.
Many new clay ideas!
During one of the sessions I was able to be in on the dissection of a sheep brain.

5. Good nutrition
Thank you Donna St.John for sharing your brain wisdom.
