Welcome to The Blooming Palette, a blog especially for high school art educators in search of seeds of inspiration.
This blog is a companion to my vegan recipe blog, The Blooming Platter, which I began in March of 2009 as a way of "giving back" to all of the wonderful vegan bloggers and other cooks/chefs out there who have inspired me, taught me so much, and continue to be incredibly generous.
I vowed then that, once I had mastered the basics, I would start a second blog, for the same reason, devoted to my other passion in life: visual art.
The Blooming Palette offers a growing collection of resources for art educators: lesson and unit plan ideas (what I call "Creative Challenges"), "hooks" or what used to be called "anticipatory sets," teacher samples, inspirational images, student samples, assessments, and more. In addition, you will find resources that are specific to my work at Princess Anne High School that I hope can be adapted for your context.
Sidebars provide an index plus expanding lists of my favorite art and art education blogs and other websites, artists, books and journals, videos, facts, tips, quotes and more.
I trust you will find much that inspires you and helps you be your best in the classroom and beyond. Here's to creativity that is evergreen!
