Artistic Quotes

So I’m taking a Year 11 Art class as an extra supervision, and I saw a student wandering around looking to be off task.

‘Would you mind terribly doing some Art this lesson?’

‘But Miss, this is Art!’

So I asked him if he was busy finding his muse. He replied that he was just finding ideas and thinking about what he could do for his sculpture.

‘So you’re finding your muse then?’

‘What’s that??’

He then explained that last year, he had created a piece commemorating Steve Irwin, and that his teacher had laughed at the final product.

‘Why was it so funny?’

‘Because I couldn’t be bothered to draw grass on it so I went outside and got some grass and stuck it to the paper’.

What a great kid. He can’t wait to be in Year 12 so he can concentrate on his favourite medium of drawing, instead of all this other stuff.


Best Present for a Teacher EVER!!!



I always knew I had the most fabulous students ever, but when I got the following from one of my students, I was completely blown away. Make sure to read the spelling of ‘beliebing’ lol






I am the eternal cat lady – pictures of my cats have been known to find their way into my slides…


This one is for the day I completely fainted from heat exhaustion before 9:30am – luckily my fabulous students more more than keen to try out their first aid qualifications!


I am still blown away by these gifts. Most thoughtful gift ever, I think!
