Welcome to Art Geek Teaching!
I value your input and opinions. If there is content you would like to see, criticisms, complaints or to leave a nice word, please hit me up by going to the contact page.
This website is going to be a depository for art and speech assignments and resources. It will be one place that students can bookmark and have the necessary information they need to: know what assignments are due and when, get resources to help them with assignments if I am not available or when they are working from home. For students and parents the easiest way to get to your assignments is to click on your grade in the navigation bar just below the Art Geek Teaching logo. Choose whether you want assignments or resources and you will be taken to the appropriate page. Parents, I want to make sure that you know you are welcome and encouraged to visit often. This site is NOT replacing sycamore. I will continue putting assignments on Sycamore as I have been. Most of the time on Sycamore there will be a link to a page here. It will be difficult to keep up the first year of putting assignments on here. After that it will just be a matter of adding different assignments as I find something that may be more engaging for the kids and also changing the due dates. I will have a tab at the top for upcoming events also. There are a variety of art shows and arts related events that your student might want to participate in.
There are a variety of resources that will be available for art teachers. First I would like to profile one art teacher a week. We will talk about their school, showcase their art and this site will give us an platform to brag about them. We have some AMAZING art teachers in America. I will begin by showcasing some talented Nebraska Art teachers. Then there will be a section for lesson plans. As we move along I hope that others will donate lesson plans that we can put on the site and also have for downloads. Other resources for teachers will be an Art Teacher Tip of the week which will usually be a short piece specific to technology. Not always but usually as that is an area where I have a huge interest and love to work in. We will also do book reviews. Finally there are resources available by way of courses, webinars, books and a new magazine. These are courses that I have developed in a variety of areas. I am not sure when I will launch the magazine but target launch date will be January…or should I be less specific and say winter?
Everyone else that is not a student, parent or art teacher I hope we will have something fun for you as well. If you have interest in the arts or technology in general I believe there will be engaging content for your perusal. There is a section called rants that is basically on op ed area. This is a G rated site so it is an area you can feel comfortable delving into without wondering what might pop up. There are many art education sites, not all art is G rated. Not all art sites are G rated. There is nothing wrong with drawings, paintings, sculptures or photographs that beautifully showcase the human form but we wont have that material here. I want this site to be okay for anyone, kindergarten through Grandma.
At the very top of the logo there is a navigation bar that has links to a number of my other media sites. My art studio website (in very bad need of updating), a magazine that I publish call Digital Art Creation Magazine (currently on hold since I have been teaching), and a Digital Art Summit that I produce and publish each year. Additionally there are links to my twitter and facebook pages. I am not very active on most social media sites these days unless there I have a product launch going on or some other business item that I need to broadcast. feel free to stop in at any of the locations. Communicate, let us know what you are thinking.
