These are the things I do
To avoid the things I should be doing..
About a year ago I started to notice a lot of bullet journals on my Instagram and Pinterest feed. I liked the idea of mixing organization with art. As a high school art teacher I carry around a "lesson plan book" to all of my classes. This lesson plan book is actually a sketchbook filled with a bunch of doodles, notes, lists, ideas and occasionally an in depth drawing. After seeing all of these bullet journals I was inspired to try and organize my plan book for this school year. My favorite part was making the monthly headline.These are my favorites from the 2017-2018 school year.
This pencil drawing was from observation when I took my AP Photography class on a field trip to the Chicago Botanic Gardens.
This image consists of sketches I did when walking around the Chicago Art Institute. Instead of walking past all of my favorite pieces in the museum I decided to record.
As October arrived even my to do lists became creative... I probably had a lot to do and did this "to do" Ouija instead..
This drawing was started on March 14th during the 17 minutes the majority of my class walked out to protest gun violence.
