Art educators have to deal with a lot of issues, so we’ve created topics that will help you find what you’re looking for. Each one covers a different area relevant to art teachers today so go ahead and explore them.
All art teachers have their challenges. But some things are specific to art teachers: the messy paintbrush left in the sink, remembering 500 different students on conference night, the struggle to keep your room organized when people are constantly bringing you “donations.” These are the things of art teacher nightmares.
But, at the same time, we love our jobs. After all, we get to help students develop their creativity by making beautiful artwork! Being an art teacher is amazing and exhausting all at the same time. If you’re feeling stressed, here’s a little humor to help you out and let you know you’re not alone.
The Life of An Art Teacher as Told Through Memes
Art teachers are magical creatures full of rainbows and glitter.
Sometimes, we may go a bit overboard when collecting art materials.
However, we love a great art pun.
We have our struggles,
and we rise to meet them.
There are things that annoy us,
and, sometimes, the art teacher life gets frustrating.
But there are also moments of unexpected freedom.
We work to teach our students the ways of the artist.
and we “bring it,” every single day,
all while finding time to work on our own art.
We may be tired at the end of the week,
but, in the end…
Hopefully, theses memes made you smile! Memes also are perfect for use in the classroom. Check out three ways to use them and try this fun project while you’re at it!
