Here’s another spread from the art journal I’ve been working on. I must admit I still haven’t actually written anything in it yet. I think I’ve decided to get the whole thing done art-wise first and then go back and to the journaling part. It’s starting to take shape in my head, and I think it’ll most likely be done in a “notes to a friend” type fashion. That’s how I’ve tended to “journal” in the past…long letters to friends, sometimes mailed, sometimes not.
Things are getting busier than normal for me with the start of Fall term coming on Monday. In addition to my Student Life role during the day, I’m teaching two classes on Tuesday evenings, one English Composition and one Student Life Skills. I’m teaching them both in a hybrid format (half in-class, half on-line), the English from 5:00pm-6:30pm and the SLS from 7:00pm-8:30pm, so that’s the new learning curve for me. I’ve never taught hybrid courses before. Since I can teach in two areas, the idea behind that scheduling was to give evening students an opportunity to take two classes on the same night….but both of my classes are full and I don’t have anyone who’s taking both! Oh well, we tried. Maybe it’ll catch on better next time. I was writing up my journaling prompts for my English class this afternoon and I kept thinking about my art journal, but, alas, I guess I can’t assign them visual art assignments in an English class.
