I’m teaching 7th grade for The Art Connection this season which is my fifth year with the program (with a long hiatus in between). The Art Connection is an incredible outside-of-school program run on Saturdays at the Carnegie Museum of Art on Saturdays for grades 5 – 9. We’re celebrating our 90th year in 2018 – 2019. We’re three sessions into our second semester but just finishing up our second major project.
I have an amazing group of artists to share my Saturdays with this year. In the morning, a large group of girls (and one new boy beginning the second semester) and in the afternoon, a smaller, very social group of students. They have already forged such strong relationships, they created a Secret Santa gift exchange before our holiday break. It has been such a pleasure and in my posts to follow, I will document our experiences so far.
