I have just returned from the three day Colorado Art Education Conference in Breckenridge. While I was there attended classes and lectures to expand my practice as an art teacher. I learned many new and old processes for working with ceramics such as how to screen print on ceramics, glaze resist techniques, mishima, and sgraffito. One of the most unique classes that I attended involved making a simple instrument that lights up by creating a circuit. I also took classes on encaustics, installations, and ball point pen engravings. I am excited to share what I learned with my students. Below was a quote from Pablo Picasso that I found in Breckenridge that I thought perfectly sums up my experience as an art teacher.
