I don't have many readers but the ones I do have are kindred spirits. So dear blogger friends help me! Help me stop comparing my students art to all the "cute" art I see on the internet. The COOKIE CUTTER art. I don't know about you but I get a little depressed by the cuteness of it all and the roughness of my students work!
|KEEP THE ART ROOM HEALTHY! NO MORE COOKIE CUTTER PROJECTS!|
As time goes by, I am tempted by all "cute" cookie cutter art projects that are floating out there in cyber space. You know the ones. . . where every child has a similar outcome. The teacher usually has a "first you do this like this" type of lesson. They are so appealing and "cute" I want to take them all home and put them on my refrigerator. It is like dangling a gooey chocolate chip cookie in front of me before dinner. I so want to partake because it looks so good but I can't! It's unhealthy.
If you support the anti-coookie cutter diet PLEASE repost a picture of chocolate chip cookies and/or your feelings too! I visit your blogs frequently; thanks for helping me remember what art is about!
Okay now seriously I'm going to make some homemade chocolate chip cookies from scratch!
