The Beauty Around You
As Art Teachers, we lead hectic lives.
Between memorizing hundreds of kiddos’ names, prepping projects, cleaning up messes, managing the classroom, ordering supplies, and so on and so on… we’re busy from the morning bell to the afternoon buses.
Which leads me to ask… How long has it been though since you’ve taken a few moments to sit back and appreciate your job? One of the things that I absolutely love about being an Art Teacher is the beauty I’m surrounded by each and every day. Recently, my husband Derek (@derekbalsley) and I were in my Art Room when he decided to capture some of the beauty he spotted. (He works in Marketing for a living and is a bit of an artist in his own right with photography, web design (including this site), etc.) Anyway, he did such an amazing job of capturing the beautiful objects around the room… I absolutely had to share it with you.
Take a look… and if you can, be sure to watch it in fullscreen mode, and for those of you with a fast connection, increase the quality up to 1080p to appreciate the small details. As Art Teachers, the beauty around us on a daily basis is a true blessing and something we should take a moment to consider from time to time.
We really are a lucky bunch, aren’t we?
