At the start of last school year I was hoping I could hit 100 followers by Christmas.  A year later(school starting Monday for teachers)...I now have 300 followers on blogspot!  THAT IS JUST NUTTY!  Thank you everyone who follows Art With Mr. E!  I pray that as a new school year begins you will find fresh ideas, new takes on old ideas, steadfast projects worth revisiting, inspiration, encouragement, honesty, humor, and a whole lot of fun! Here's hoping the 2011-2012 school year is one of the best ever!

((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((SIDE NOTE)))))))))))))))))))))))))))
I've never been in this for followers!?!?!?!  I do this because I feel connecting to other art teachers is a worth while pursuit!!  A win win situation!!!!  Having people that actually care about what I say is amazing to me...and icing on the cake! :) 


  1. Thanks for the start-of-school pep talk Mr.E! I can't wait to get into my beautiful new art room and start a new year. Congrats on your three hundreth follower!

  2. Ted,
    I am surprised you only have 300 readers.Yours is always on of the first blogs I head to when I need a fresh new idea. Congrats! Keeps up the good work! I know you keep me inspired, and about 500+ more kiddos through me!

  3. I'm loving what I see on your blog! You have some very creative ideas. I hope you might be willing to submit some of your ideas to As a blogger, we encourage you to leave your url with each submission so that you may enjoy a larger following.

  4. Congrats! 299 of them are me, but...

    No,seriously, there's only one of me and you have that many followers because you rock.

    Today I finally saw a REAL Chihuly exhibit and I don't think I'd ever even HEARD of him before you started posting all your stuff last year. So thanks for putting the name in my brain and a bug to find out more. Best art exhibit EVER. (And anything that outshines Matisse has to be really really good.)

  5. Hi Mr E,

    Congratulations on your 300 followers - that's 100x the number of my followers! Do you have any advice for a new blogger?

  6. So glad to among that number! I'm a newish 6th grade teacher, and I plan to incorporate more art this year! We do not have an art teacher so it's all on me. Eeek! Thanks for all the inspiration.
