Great Blogs that inspire me
There are an incredible amount of inspiring blogs out in cyber space. I can spend HOURS "surfing" the web; gazing at beautiful images, being taken in by a wonderfully written tutorial, or being cought up in to researching how to make all these wonderful ideas transpire in my own home or classroom. I regulary take inspiration from the blogs in the list to the right. Below are a few that I've really spent a lot of time on this past year. I encourage you to take a look on this freezing cold day!
What about you? What blogs do you relaly look forward to being updated?
les petites tetes de l'art: http://lespetitestetesdelart.b...
- Although in French, the images are so inspiring it drives me to copy and paste the text in to google translate. Centered mostly on early childhood learning it's obvious that creativity and growth through exploration take center stage.
Deep Space Sparkle: http://www.deepspacesparkle.co...
- Patty Palmer always is there to provide a beautifully illustrated tutorial on a wide range of media and topics. I regulary look to her website to freshen up my curriculum.
Mini eco: http://www.minieco.co.uk
-Although, not a traditional art education website, the crafts on Kate's blog are so relevant to many art standards and techniques that I find myself regulary being influenced by her tutorials and style. A must for paper arts.
- I check daily on Colossal to get a quick look at what's relevant and exciting in the modern art world. It's a great way to keep up to date on current artists and I regulary bring back images and stories to my elementary classroom to further inspire students.
Arte a scuola: http://arteascuola.com
- Such a visually appealing website, filled with project ideas and tutorials. I have taken many ideas of this middle school art teacher back to my elementary classroom with great success. Her blog is easy to navigate and beautiful to gaze at.
