“There are no mistakes, just happy accidents.”

–Bob Ross 

Art is truly a gift–what a joy to have an outlet through which creativity can flow. Expression is encouraged; exploration is celebrated. Mistakes are made, and beauty is found in the imperfections.

As a part of EDEL 3100 (Arts in the Elementary School), I was able to spend a semester participating in artistic exploration. I challenged myself and tried new things that will enable me to teach my future students in genuine, vulnerable ways. These opportunities have not only expanded my pedagogy  but have also ignited a passion for the implementation of arts in academic curriculum.

On this website, I hope to share these experiences with you–so that you may broaden your creative mind, rejoice in self-expression, and even use these activities in your own classroom one day.

Happy exploring, my dear friends. Let’s find joy in the messes.
