Turn Your Art Room into Your Dream Art Space: AME 111



Need a little art room make-over? Yvette Ackerman is passionate about making her art room feel like home. By using warm, textural elements and a strategy for student inspiration, Yvette’s art room is a dreamy example of what’s possible. Yvette is a former classroom teacher turned art teacher for her local Charter School in Northern California. Yvette is also a brand new Sparkler having joined the membership last August and turns the interview to ask Patty questions about work-life balance, what’s in the future for Deep Space Sparkle (BIG reveal here) and strategies for art assessment.

Check out Yvette’s Bulletin Board ideas with links to Pacon paper products in the Show Notes below!
