I took 41 high school students to Newfield's Indianapolis Museum of Art on Thursday this week. My favorite thing is making them pick a piece of artwork and imitate it, take a picture of both and turn it in to me. It is always gold!
In other news, the school that I teach at had active shooter training this past Wednesday. This has nothing to do with art, it was just moderately traumatizing so I thought I'd mention it. We ran different exercises like fight, barricade and evacuate. I "died" in the evacuation. I also found that my character is lacking when under pressure. How, you might ask? Well, after I realized that I had been "shot" from above (local pd were firing blanks at us) I freaked out and bolted through the door in front of me. Not so bad, but there was an older lady in my path and I kind of launched her through it...
Back to painting!
