Today is the last episode of Art Made Easy Season One!
When I embarked on this podcast journey, my intentions was to test out the platform, see if anyone was interested in listening to what I had to say and to share my love of teaching art through others.
I’m proud that the show has over 65K downloads and has been in the New & Noteworthy section as well as the What’s Hot section in iTunes (K-12 education) since we began. That means that many of you tune in every week to listen.
To me there is no better way to begin summer, than to have a stack of books at the ready. Teachers need this time to recharge their creative batteries, take a break from the rigors of teaching and to explore new ideas and pursuits.
Books can help take you there…to the place where anything is possible.
Today’s episode shares three of my favorite books: One to help you form new habits, another to take you on a creative journey and the final one to allow you to step into the life of an artist/entrepreneur.
Season Two of Art Made Easy will start in late August. See you then!
