    I like Art Project Girl
    She is relevant, honest and so positive. She also has consistent content, interacts well with her readers and recently put together a lesson share of art lesson plans for 30 plus art teachers who contributed! So cool!

    Thanks Jessica of http://theartofeducation.wordpress.com/ You are on my daily reads.

    Feeling is mutual! I love how we have created online professional development within our blogging community. Being in a district that does not have professional development for art teachers (at best inadequate), I feel like our conversations keep me up to speed. Your department is what I dream of one day creating. I love how you organize curriculum to scaffold on prior learning and it is consistent throughout the district. That being said it also allows for teacher creativity. This is definitely the future of art ed. If you haven’t checked out the blog yet you have been missing out. Have fun catching up with all her thoughtful posts.
