As for the photo of my art room door - it relates to my basic art room rule: NO WHINING. Complaining is not tolerated in a happy art room! The other two photos are large pieces that have been residing in my art room for a long time, both made with plaster bandage. The mummy's hieroglyphics spell its name, Professor Paw, based on our school mascot. The body was a cast of a 6th grader several years ago.
And by the way, about my blog name, YES, there is a large dragon residing in my art room. I'll explain more about her (her name is Lucy, for Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds) some other time.
It's evening and I'm still trying to figure out my way around in the blog world. I have a student teacher currently, so while she was teaching earlier today I had a little time to spend with the computer tech gal here at school to get me started developing this blog, but I've got a ways to go. If you check back in coming days/weeks, hopefully my heading etc will look more high-tech (I know, my photo doesn't currently even fit the format. It's pitiful so far). Hopefully, when my 21-year-old son is home from college in a few days, I can get him to sit down with me and help with the web & computer graphic stuff I don't understand before he packs his bags and heads to South Africa for the summer. After all, unlike those of you who are in the beginning of your career and the technology has been a natural part of your existence, I've been teaching over 30 years, and this is all alien to me. But I love reading your blogs and hope you'll put up with my shaky start and maybe even offer help or advice.
