Creativity Meme – LOL!

Odds are you’ve thought this before, odds are you’ve had this conversation with someone in your administration before, and odds are you have just as hard of a time getting traction spreading the message as I do.

But the message of creativity is worth our time, and not going away anytime soon. Hopefully this image will give you a chuckle, and remind you to keep light-hearted about the issue… after all, Rome wasn’t built in a day!

Like the image? It’s an AOE original, based off of the “Condescending Wonka” internet meme, of which there are thousands of variations. Please ‘pin’ to your heart’s desire! Oh internet, we love you. ;)

    Jessica, all the changes to the blog are fantastic, the new writing team and posts every day bring the blog to another level! Now all you need is a writer at the high school level!

    • Now you are talking my language! Love the idea and will consider it for the future

    I agree. I recently found this blog and check in to read every day or two. Being the end of the school year (summer vacation started for me today YAY!) I think I will use alot of the ideas on here in my art room next year. Even though I teach high school art, I still find alot of the things on here applicable. I would love to see more specific to high school though.

    • So glad you find the topics relevant for any art room. I do conduct PD for K-12 so I know although I’ve taught K-5, most of the ideas translate and will even more with our new middle school writers. Congrats on the start of your summer vacation- What a good feeling!
