Art teacher and chronic doodler... from observation.
Being funny with students requires a certain amount of facial expression. I have been debilitated in my attempt to be funny with students.
No peaking, and the experience is more valuable than the product.
As a teacher, I see the full range of work ethic and value choices. Tatum works while Melanie sleeps. I do not judge because everyone is fighting a battle. I provide a safe place for students to create and breathe and sleep and be. I create a non-judgmental space that often accomodates students and adults who feel free to voice thier opinions... which can often be judgmental. We are fighting battles and we are on our own journies of self awareness. Peace.

What is your relationship with a Higer Power like? A friend of mine mentioned to me that a Rabbi Friend of his suggested that God likes a good argument. I thought that was funny. The self portrait is G2 .o5 on bristol board with marker for the added color.
The mall is busy. Kids are shopping. I am hiding in a chair, drawing a chair.

Kierkegaard said we undersand life by looking back, but we must live life forward. On a trip to the Chicago Art Institute with a group of students, I penned the students behind me and then I penned the rapidly moving images I saw through the front window of the bus . I still do not understand life except that perhaps it is full of energy and art and love.
It's hot. No air in school, so we took to the shade and drew trees. I drew students drawing trees.
Reflection of our state. Reflection of our time. Reflection of our lives.
I use to take students to museums. COVID has altered much. We adjust now. So much is virtual.

Some don't drink. Rumi said that wine made some people angry, therefore wine was forbidden to all. Not sure that would go well in the mid-west.
