Hello! My name is Mollie Katzin and I am an art teacher at an elementary school near Atlanta, Georgia. I teach what I live: creativity, positivity and a bit of humor. It is important to me to bring the magic of art to my students and inspire them both in and outside of the classroom. This blog is a place to reflect and record ideas and display the beautiful work my talented students create. Sometimes I’ll even share some of my own artwork and adventures!
Please don’t eat the artwork? What is that all about?
I find myself telling my students not to eat the art at least once a week. I don’t know what could possibly be so appetizing about art supplies. This title is a nod to an old book called Please Don’t Eat the Daisies that I read as a child even though it was much too advanced for me and about a suburban mother raising rambunctious young boys. At the time I didn’t relate to it at all except that I really liked the illustrations and the wit of the author. The book is a collection of hilarious essays detailing the shenanigans of that sort of lifestyle which I can finally relate to now that I am a teacher!
Please enjoy this blog and please do not eat the artwork.
