Last night I painted my first window advertisement at Bill's dealership. Not so bad for a first time, I'd say, but next time I'd like to get some images up there to go along with the letters. If there *is* a next time, hee hee.
In other job news... most of you who read this blog probably already know this, but I've decided to leave my position teaching elementary art and I've accepted a job at an art and music centered preschool in Iowa City. I wasn't really in the market for a new job, but when this came up, and I went to visit the school, I just had a great feeling about it. There are lots of reasons I decided to make the change, including it is much closer to home, and it will be less hours and a more relaxed pace. I love working with the younger students - the kids at Preucil are 3,4, & 5 year olds. One thing I am really looking forward to is that I will be teaching one class of 17 each day - instead of the 150 I see every day at school. And I get to work with them on art, but also everything else - reading, writing, and creating of all kinds. The school is based on the Reggio Emilia approach, which is very student directed and respects the students knowledge and interests. The last day of school is June 7th, and I start my new job on June 11th - not wasting any time!
