Adventures of an Art Teacher-- Part 1

For the past three years i never once believed that doing the simiple job of teaching art was a stressful pasttime or career. However, I was wrong.

These past few weeks to researching and lesson planning, all might I add without a safety net, has finally taken its toll. I have never been completely blank when thinking about a lesson for an art class; and the unbelieveable has finally happened. I have writers block!

I have been staring at the computer screen for the past week, at the same word document, at the same lesson plan; and I cant seem to write a single line. I even went against the rules and dragged my Dell laptop to work with me at the mall to try to work. And still nothing.

Just a lot of game playing, facebook and etsy (if only I had money!).

When will it end?!?!?!?!?!!!!

The only answer I have been able to come up with is -- never! Well I hope not but we shall see.

Blog Update!!!: as you can see I have not taken a step back from the blogging world... I actually had blogging withdrawal! it wasnt pretty.


  1. Hang in there! You are going to find your inspiration back! Just relax and be the wonderful person you are and a Muse will follow! Blessings!

  2. Take a break, Im sure the writer's blog will come to an end, you just need to rest your brain! I remember in school my most favorite project was to study the work of an artist I loved and then try to make a painting in that style. I chose John Waterhouse...it was hard work, but I so enjoyed it!
