Welcome to my blog – a work in progress.

The aim of the blog is to create an online community of art teachers to share resources, lesson plans, tips and ideas.

Below I will post articles on the Visual Arts – ideas, resources etc that I come across on the web and develop myself.

Thank you and enjoy the blog!
