I know I'm new here, but I can tell you that the former art teacher did not
matte and frame anything unless it was to go in an exhibit. She would
exhibit grade level work in the hallway - no shows or special exhibits. If
any of us had said that to her she would have blown a gasket!
Sounds like this guy is bucking to take over for the retiring teacher and
doing a fine job of it! I would let him go to the principal - but I would
get in there first and tell her/him what's going on. I know from my Third
grade that the more you buy out-of-pocket, the more the school will let you
buy. We often joked that we should take everything out of the room we had
purchased on our own and show the community how bare the walls would be. I
have no intention of buying the supplies for the Art room myself- couldn't
afford it! Don't start something that everyone will expect you to do. Stick
to your guns and make it clear that you have the support that matters!
I told him he had no idea how expensive and time consuming

>for the annual art show or mounted for it. Otherwise things go home "as is"
