This weekend I went down to Richmond, VA to look into the PhD program in art education at Virginia Commonwealth University -VCU. This is something I have wanted to do my whole life. I dropped out of high school after the 9th grade so I have always wanted to help others stay in school by focusing on their interest in fine arts programs. The drawbacks are that I will have to quit teaching and I will be broke for the next 3 years. I love teaching art, I just love what I do and I
am not sure I am ready to leave the classroom. How does one make the decision to go back to school?
The Village Cafe on the VCU campus where we had an awesome lunch. They also serve breakfast all day! It was great...if you ever get to Richmond you have to eat here.
Plaza art supplies...I heard this is the place to buy art supplies...so I did!
This John Dewey quote seems apropos for the day!
Somehow when hubby and I go on a road trip we always seem to end up at a Bass Pro Shop!
This week at Cedar Point, the librarian asked us to decorate pumpkins up as children book characters. I did Splat the Cat and his sidekick Seymour mouse. I wish I could keep him all year!
The following are the other teacher's pumpkins. We have such a talented group of teachers don't you think?
