A 24-Hour Art Teacher

By Nancy Walkup, posted on Mar 11, 2010

When I first started teaching, I used to refer to myself as a 24-hour art teacher because I was either teaching or thinking about teaching all the time.

Somehow I thought that would change over the years but, in reality, that hasn’t happened. More than ever, as an elementary art teacher and editor of SchoolArts everything I do is connected through teaching art. And I expect that is true for every one of you.

So here I am, writing for my like-minded compatriots, aiming to share your world of art education by providing timely art news; entertaining or thought-provoking artists, ideas, stories, and issues;  professional opportunities for you; and project and lesson ideas and exhibition possibilities for your students. We can be 24-hour art teachers together!
