Celebrating Effort and Learning

Before I became a teacher, I drew and painted nearly every day.  It was a hard choice to leave that behind, but I have never regretted the decision.  While I enjoy creating art, I love watching my students grow as artists and learners even more.

Here are three drawings from one of my students.  We set these out a few days ago in order to see her progress over the past few art classes.  The drawing on the left is from ninth grade.  The drawing on the right is her latest work as an 11th grader.  As you can see, her efforts are paying off.
