Hi. In our district we have a teacher's art show in the Spring. It is
called "Teaching By Example". It is hung in the school board room and
sometimes in the library. It gives us teachers something to work
towards each year and not become stagnant. It shows our students who
see it that we are artists and it shows the Board and Parents that their
teachers are also artists. There are always funny comments about the
artwork that is non-objective and abstract but often the commenters are
made to feel that they just don't understand art when they make the
It's good for the teachers.
