prestonspringer The details of the other days post: novel alert....I never like my art when I start, always nervous, always change, but always just run with it..."no mistakes just happy accidents"-Bob Ross. I was under a solid time crunch and had one shot...This is not my original idea in my head it failed and freaked me out, but I'm happy with the end. Local church is doing a "repurpose" series the cardboard pieces were given out to write down things people don't like about themselves/struggles/how they are seen(I think). Half I used to turn face down(ironically the last piece I used said "ugly") the rest I burnt and made a slurry to mix with my paint. The wood is from an old barn rotting in a pile in the woods. The subject I decided would be a brides flowers.(some good biblical symbolism I thought) Trust the process, it's a hard thing to teach my HS students, they want immediate satisfaction, but older folks can appreciate the end/return. I still struggle with everything I make, but I trust the end, knowing I can trash it or keep it...and I don't really care if you like it or not, I like creating. That's the other hard thing, if you can't find joy in what you are doing STOP it. That's toxic. You can't make joy out of toxic environments, people, situations. BUT you can flip that mess over and paint something pretty on it. (Please don't burn down your workplace, though that would be cool, it's only for the greatest movie ever Office Space). Hope you have some joy to think about in your life today, and that list outweighs the things that drag you down. This was a really heavy piece to work on, made me think a bunch...thinking is good, unless it's about all the bad...don't distort a perfectly good joy filled perspective unless you're an artist, then you can jack that mess up all you want...#artteacher #repurposed #findjoy #jesus #churchart #burnstuffandmakeartoutofit #acrylic #watercolor #bridalbouquet #weddingart #weddingflowers #weddingartist #sram #nc #cltwedding #prestonspringer #lakeforestwestlake #westlakechurch 4h

inkadink_artwithzink Our 'one size fits all' aprons don't account for the different growth rates of boys and girls in MS. It's so nice though to see them help each other out, making adjustments for a better fit. #momentsilivefor #artroom #artteacher #arteducation #middleschoolart #educationart 5h

quickfingertips As some of you already know, over the last year I've been exploring how I can use drawing as a tool for raising awareness about endangered species. I've just started a new body of work and I'll be posting some of it on here soon. I thought I'd use the aquarelle graphite to sketch an idea for a Hawaiian crow, a bird which is now sadly extinct in the wild. I really like the fluidity of line you can achieve with it, as you can see in the drawing you can use it to create a wash effect too. It's probably not the best material to work with if you're trying to achieve very fine detail but it's perfect for expressive drawing. #drawing #pencildrawing #graphite #aquarelle #pencil #drawingtips #drawinghelp #art #artteacher #arttips #artmaterials #artstudent #arteducation #gcseart #alevelart #artfoundation #highschoolart #illustration #hawaiiancrow #endangeredspecies #peoplescreative #postitfortheaesthetic #instaart #drawingtechniques 5h

castsailmars Watching, Eli, working with his playdoh next to me while I get my lesson plan started for the substitute this week. They have me testing for three straight days and Friday I'll be at the district service center helping set-up the district art show with all of the winning entries from all over SISD along with our district art teachers :) #art #artteacher #artexhibit #artwork #cats #zucchinithecat #childrenartists 6h
