Tracing Is Amazing!

Happy holiday! Merry Christmas!

It’s no secret that I’m a big advocate for tracing! There’s a vocal minority who looks down on tracing, so I was excited to do a series on our podcast, advocating tracing! I want to help you and your students be successful at art and tracing is one great tool in that process. Since it’s December, I’m combining this series with some fun freebies and a $50 Giveaway for you! Get all the details here!


Here’s a Preview of our Anyone Can Teach Art Podcast Series on Tracing:

Episode 10 (November 27, 2017): You’ll learn when and how to incorporate mindful tracing into your art lessons by using some thoughtful questions to help keep the brain engaged and learning while tracing.

Episode 11 (December 4, 2017): You’ll learn about six different methods of tracing, including my favorite, the Light Pad!

Episode 12 (December 11, 2017): You’ll join the discussion with Deanna and Julie about tracing and you hear more examples of great ways to include tracing in art.


Black Friday? Small Business Saturday? Cyber Monday?

Whatever you want to call it, ’tis the season for being grateful and giving presents! I’m soooo thankful for you and to say thank you for listening to our podcast, I’m giving you some great freebies.
