Dearest Art Teachers

I do hope your day went well.  All this finishing projects and marking is tough on the mind as many children are doing different things thus needing different mediums out the store room to use.  And it’s not that I leave the projects to be finished at the end of each term.  Most of the children finish and I find myself hankering after a new skill or medium and so move on.  But those few who do not keep up and do not heed my plea for them to come at break and finish still have the potential for really beautiful art and I want to be able to frame and be proud of these works.  So….end of term becomes this chaotic time of multitasking for me.  Then there is the marking to finish.

Do you find this time in the term tough?
