To clear up any first day jitters I played a little game with my students (which I can't disclose here because it involves some mystery and I don't want my future students to already have the inside scoop! But if your curiousity is killing you, message me and I'll fill you in!) and go over rules/expectations. I also ask that my students fill out a brief survey so that I know where they are with experience and skill level to help guide my instruction throughout the year. The kids have been great and I'm really looking forward to getting my nice, clean room filthy with art making! Enjoy the clean room and empty shelf photos while they last because they won't last long!
