    On behalf of all the staff at and (just me), I’d like to say a hearty WAY TO GO! Your commitment to providing fresh, resourceful and thoughtful content to fellow art teachers is inspiring… and certainly worth all the kudos. Keep up the great work!

    Congrats- you certainly deserve it! I love the Teaching Palette and appreciate all your hard work. You didn’t happen to ask Scholastic Instructor why they are not having the art print and lesson plan in their publication any more, did you? I sent an email asking why it was not being included and never received a response. They’re losing my business because they are no longer including the art prints and lesson plans! I’m really disappointed in the publication.
