9th Annual Art-a-Day Challenge, January 2017!

Mother & Daughters (and other stuff)

This is one of the sketches I am playing with.

I have also worked this week on the creation of a professional development opportunity where I will be exploring the ideas in the following books:

  • Art and Artist by Otto Rank
  • The Story of Art by Gombrich
  • The Painted Word by Tom Wolfe

I am doing this from the perspective of an educator and curriculum specialist, not an "artist" -- and I want to explore more ideas about art and why creative expression is oppressed in many of us. Taking on Bobi's challenge is a leap beyond my comfort zone, but I plan on making it fun.

Tamra - Welcome! Nothing like jumping into the water to find out. You're fearless!
I read your facebook request for reference regarding your classes. It opened lots of questions I'd like to talk with you about sometime.

Hi Bobi ~ I often tend to announce what class/project I am working on because I never know when somebody will have a great idea or lead me to a useful resource. =) Always happy to talk shop... or about almost any other topics! lol
