Whatever happened to October......I can't believe it's been nearly a month since I've posted anything. Here's to better time management in the days to come. :)
We just finished up a workshop on cornhusk dolls with local artisan and long time friend of the Manawa Middle School Art Department, Judy D. I am so excited to have the kids experience art projects that tie in to the rich cultural heritage of our country and corn husk dolls are an excellant way to do this. The kids are excited to be working with a different art medium and even though the subject was "dolls" boys and girls alike worked with great enthusiasm.
Over the past 30 years I have taught art to kindergarten - 8th graders in a variety of configurations. During the 09/10 school year I will have 1st-6th graders and will be working in two buildings. I live in a small midwestern community with my husband and two children ages 13 and 10. I also enjoy good food, the great outdoors, our pets and spending time with family and friends.
