Baltimore Museum of Art

I spent the most amazing morning at the Baltimore Museum of Art. They held a workshop that was for teachers who wanted to learn how to use art to teach English Language Learners literacy skills. We all received a box full of wonderful artful thinking resources, including quality laminated copies of paintings and easy-to-read cards of all sorts of activities that can be used with our children. I had a blast! The best part was knowing that I can really use the materials and strategies immediately. I was also able to pick up some freebies that they were giving away. Brought home beautiful posters of paintings by O’Keeffe and Matisse, and a wonderful art catalogue that will be a very portable way of bringing art with me as an itinerant teacher. The day just filled me with joy. Then I rushed home to see my daughter Emily-Kate who had arrived from University of South Carolina last night. It was great seeing her. After that I sat down at the computer to work on my self-portrait, and I figured out how to make a slide show with sound, and link it to my blog. Possibly I could have used PowerPoint, but I wanted to try something different. Very productive day so far.

    Isn’t it great to be revitalized from a workshop or presentation. I have attended many at BMA- you come away with new ideas that can inspire your teaching!
