Years ago, I was an unenlightened art teacher...Then, I saw the light. There was a big move away from "Holiday" art and I jumped on the moving train. Teaching kids how to make Easter bunnies, Santa's in a sleigh, and fish made out of hearts just wasn't a proper way to teach "ART" to children. So, I stopped. For about 15 years. And then, I found Pinterest........Uh oh! All of a sudden, there were spooky Halloween pictures on my bulletin boards. And then there were holiday trees with glitter and on and on and on! Unlike those of you who are in the beginning of your art teaching careers, I am beginning to wrap mine up in the next couple of years. I feel a certain sense of , shall we say, freedom from the "shoulds"? If I see a cute, fun holday-esque project, I'm all over it! I did "Holiday" art when I was a kid and my sense of artistic integrity wasn't warped! It may even have had something to do with my career choice! All I'm saying is this, if the cottonball tail fits? Glue it!
