Why I Teach Art

"I mean the kids take art so they can have freedom to express themselves in an environment where it’s ok to be different, its ok to not be normal. If they did this in other places in the school, they typically would get bullied."

Written by a very overweight senior girl who found herself through ink and watercolor this year.


  1. Art is the freedom to express oneself and not be normal. Love it!

  2. As a teacher, you must live for these comments. Beautiful.

  3. Thanks all. And yes, Marcia, these moments keep me going!

  4. Total heart-squeeze. Thanks for sharing.


Hey, do you ever wonder why they call it 'your two cents?'
