Here we go!

Welcome to my blog!  I am a middle school art teacher in the middle of North Carolina.  I hope to use this space to share what we are doing at Albemarle Middle School with the rest of the world.  If you are a parent, Welcome!  I hope that you enjoy seeing and sharing your child's art.  If you are another art teacher, Hello!  I'd love any feedback that you would like to share.  I'm looking forward to reading comments from my visitors!


  1. Congratulations on your blog!! I am looking forward to seeing all of the wonderful artwork your students create.

  2. Welcome MizzSmiff (love the name!) I started blogging in August and already am finding it very rewarding - sharing ideas with other art teachers from around the world, in real time, is a truly wonderful thing. nNt to mention it being an excellent way to record and track lessons and ideas. I'd love you to visit me at dream painters :)

  3. Thank you Elizabeth! I love your blog. Our 7th graders study Australia and the countries in the Pacific Rim, usually sometime in the spring and I try to incorporate dream paintings into some kind of project that I do with them. Love your student's art!


  4. Woohoo!!! Another local art blogger! Looking forward to seeing your (and some of my former) students' artwork!!! :)
