My thoughts about the creative process and a place to share my art works.

What Are We?
This is a hand cut and paste collage. I made this a while back but given the terrible tragedy at the elementary school I find myself asking this question. What are we? I spent a major part of my art teaching career in elementary schools. How things have changed since I first started teaching- my last few years teaching that level we had to have ID badges on at all times- the school doors were locked as classes started for the day. We had lock-down practice and practiced school evacuations should we need to get the students out of the school for a bomb threat. We all have lost our innocence. So sad to see it happen to such young lives. My heart goes out to the families and the students and staff. Hug each other and tell those close to you that you love them...everyday.
