Today I lead NCCS Art Department in exploring digital practices in the art classroom. It started with a general overview of some of the free photo-editing programs Google has to offer such as Aviary and then went into ways to share, connect, and collaborate with students/parents/professionals in the community and around the globe.
As I got myself prepared, setting up the blog and Twitter account, I became really excited for the possibilities for next school year. I really hope I can maintain these different outlets to connect local businesses, artists, and community members to my classroom.
My idea for the 2011-2012 school year? Ideally, I would love to collaborate with NCMS Science Department, Stark Parks, and a few local businesses to create a piece of public art that functions as a bird/animal habitat, perhaps located on the Hoover Park Connector Trail?
Ideas are flowing!
