Teachers are learners here to

Working with children to explore creativity is the best job in the world.  It is very empowering for teachers trying out new art mediums alongside children for the very first time.  It is often the children that are the teachers and the teachers that are the learners, so together we build a community of artists.
Art is always a magnet drawing other children into trying out something new, and at times they are lining up for the next turn.  So my challenge is to always keep it small and manageable, not branch out into something that resembles a railway station.  I had a success with the printmaking as they children were keen to have a turn and wrote their names on the list to ensure they had a turn the next day.
