Getting Out of the Art Room Bubble

Recently, Jessica wrote an article about the importance of forming friendships at work. I couldn’t agree more, but being in the art room (or on the art cart) often makes it difficult to create those meaningful relationships.

Between setting up elaborate lessons, dealing with busy schedules and taking on extra duties, there’s just not much time leftover for socializing in our days. That’s why I’m excited to tell you that making connections doesn’t require a lot of time or effort. Today I’d love to share a few easy tips to start you off on the right foot this school year. You’ll start feeling like a part of the school community in no time!

What are some ways you have made meaningful connections with others?
