The NFL’s very own diabolical genius, and greatest coach of all-time!
I try to bridge the gap between my classes and those of my colleagues who teach “core” subjects, but mostly with practice in writing. Which is why I started an initiative in my classes that encourages my students to write letters to famous people for practice (as well as for extra credit in my class). To inspire them, I too have been writing letters. I received this in the mail today.
A huge shout out to @obeygiant for sending over some stickers for my art students! #shepardfairey
For those of you that don’t know who Shepard Fairey is, he is considered by many to be the Andy Warhol of this generation. He is the artist behind the Obama Hope poster back in 2008, a founding father of the booming street art scene, and the Obey clothing line. You can learn more about him in the new “Obey Giant” documentary on Hulu.
Done! A few of my gifted art club students and I collaborated to paint a "little library" which will be placed in a local park. These libraries are based on the honor system (leave a book/take a book), and are a way for everyone to have access to reading materials.
The kids worked really hard and learned a lot about design, blending/shading with paint, and best of all...they get to see their art not only being displayed in the community, but also benefiting the greater good of our town.
A huge shout out to Brenda Priest and the Holly Springs Arts Council for providing generous grant money to upgrade the technology in my classroom. I'm so incredibly happy to work and be a part of such a great community!
When my principal asked me to design a t-shirt to celebrate the successes of the staff at our school...how could I resist? I'm so proud to work, and be the parent of a student at Holly Grove Middle School.

Scrap Exchange and Art Guild Present Excellent Group Shows
The Herald Sun – by Blue Greenberg
"In downtown Durham the Art Guild is hosting its annual members’ show and the work is as diverse as Durham’s population. A members’ show is one of the perks of Guild membership and because the Arts Council building, where they are a big presence, is open seven days a week, each artist has an unbelievable stage.
I created this video for a professional development session the Fine Arts Department led here at the school. The purpose of the video is to teach kids techniques for working in a group.
May the force be with you.
Wow! My artwork that is now on display at the Durham Art Guild was one of five pieces that received an award in the 2016 Members Showcase...as well as the recipient of the People's Choice Award! I'm awestruck! There were 102 extremely talented artists represented, and I feel so honored! The work will be on display until June, and there will be a reception on May 20th. I'm bringin' pop art back. Yeah!
...and yes, that was a Justin Timberlake reference.
