Artlab Wall of Wisdom
It's taken YEARS to get my wall of wisdom. When I teach, I learn. I learn that kids are visual creatures. Stuff just sticks better if you show it with a picture. So, all the wise things I have learned over the 15 plus years of teaching I have put into a poster form. There's still a lot of ideas floating around in my brain, but it takes time to get them all out. I know not all art teachers have time to make their own posters.
