The culmination of ideas, dreams, research and adventure has lead to this Blog page which will serve as a collective hub for inspirations in combining:
EARTH + ART into education.
Education is an art in of itself. The way in which information is relayed to young minds is important and helps shape the way they think and act in every day life. In this day & age so many people depend on technology. While everyone should be trained in computer usage because of it's relevance, many children stare at screens more than they necessary.
They are don't spend as much time outside, missing out on experiencing the
natural world- the only one that truly matters.
We all remember playing tag, making mud pies and playing in a near by creek, as technology continues to grow, the joy of spending time outside dissipates. It is all about BALANCE.
As an artist and aspiring educator, I plan to teach in a way which incorporates science and art into my lessons with hands on projects and ideas which flow freely between subject matter.
This blog will document my educational journey, projects, ideas and inspirations.
Hope you enjoy:) Use whatever ideas strike you in your classroom or with your kids!
