Photo to accompany Art and Storytelling


A collaborative drawing that began with a house at Christmas time. Santa was coming to deliver presents, but a SWAT team was trying to prevent Santa from landing on the house. Finally some raindrops filled with presents and angels began to rain upon the SWAT team to stop them. Some very unusual elements that might not have happened if artist/storytellers weren’t collaborating!


About francifularts

I am an independent art educator. I had my first experience teaching ceramics when I was 24 and worked in the University for Youth program at the University of Denver. As an elementary school teacher I always found myself integrating the arts across the curriculum, which led to me working as an artist in the schools. In May of 2008 I began a master's program with Lesley University in their Creative Arts in Learning Program. It was a truly transformative and incredible experience which led me to decide to devote the rest of my teaching career to teaching art, and through the arts. About the same time that I completed my master's degree in January of 2011 I was hired to teach art in two different programs. I have never been happier in my work as a teacher, and I really appreciate the wonderful professors and cohort of fellow teachers I studied with at Lesley University. I also want to thank all of the wonderful arts educators that I have met online through the TAB/choice list serv for their thoughtful posts and insightful suggestions for teaching art!

    As a new blogger sometimes unexpected glitches occur. I was trying to insert some photos to go along with my blog, but for some reason it posted a photo as a separate blog entry, and I couldn’t get the upload photo icon to reappear so I could insert photos where I wanted them. Oh well….hopefully I won’t have this problem again.
