Art Panels


We've done a little collabo to make these art panels happen. I, and our other middle school art teacher,  had our students paint these awesome 3' x 6' panels that have been hung throughout our school. One of our high school art teachers will also be working on two pieces! I was too excited to wait to post the pictures of their completion, though. Check 'em out!

The big reveal!

18 inches officially gone and feel in' great!  Thank you to all who donated to my Bald for Bucks fundraiser. Hopefully soon we will find a cure for this terrible, terrible disease! And if you still would like to, the link is: Bald For Bucks, every dollar counts and it is truly appreciated from the bottom of my heart!

Art Stools


We painted these in the beginning of the year and I have never had the chance to upload some pictures of them! As you can see, they are very cracked and worn down now : /... I'm not sure if it was the paint I used, but they cracked quite a bit. Aside from that, though... I think my students did a great job!

Bald For Bucks


That's right, folks! Yours truly is Going Bald For Bucks this year! 16" and counting. It's been something I've wanted to do for a while now, so this is the year I'm finally not standing in any wedding parties and am going bald! 

Along with donating my hair to sick patients, I'm helping raise funds for the cancer research and patient care programs at Roswell Park Cancer Institute. One in two men, and one in three women will be diagnosed with cancer sometime in their lifetime. I know we all know someone who has been affected by cancer- family, staff, students.  

So I'm reaching out to you, friends! I'm not one to ask for much, but this is a cause I feel strongly about. Plus, the art blogging community is so supportive, inside and outside of the classroom. Donating my hair is the least I can do, but it's really your contributions that will help with the fight against cancer. No amount is too small : ).
