Lifted & Reposted from Art Project Girl

So Mrs. Art Project Girl thinks no one reads her blog?!?!?  What in the world?!?!  She rocks.  If you aren't reading it, you should be! Here is her HYSTERICAL post about why you may not be attending the AOE Conference.  I have the #2 & #1 reasons!!! hee hee  After you read this...head on over to her blog!! THANKS!  

TOP 10 reasons NOT to Attend the AOE Conference

There are a few art teachers out there who will not be attending 
The Art of Education Conference.

So here are the top 10 REASONS NOT TO ATTEND The Art of Education Conference. 

10. You believe art teachers are like Beta Fish. . . get too many together and only one will survive.

9. You have no internet, which is obviously not true because you are 
reading this right now.

8. You object to socializing online with people who have the same interests as you.
 What is this thing called Facebook?

7. Folding laundry while getting really good ideas for your classroom would be multitasking
 and you never do that.

6. You are an artist. You don't want to do what everyone else is doing.

5. The idea of PD in your pajamas goes together like bananas and peanut butter. . . a 
little bit too fruity and too nutty.

4. You are totally not curious to see what CASSIE STEPHENS will be wearing. . .

3. Because you have to "dust your spoon collection, nothing worse then a
 dusty spoon collection."

The number 2 & 1 are by the infamous MR. E from . . . Art With Mr. E

2. "You got a crayon lodged up your nose, and your surgery to remove it is on that day" -Mr. E

1. "You are an art teacher by day and spy on the weekends. . . you'll be 'away.' 
You would tell us where, but then you'd have to kill us!!!" -Mr. E


  1. Ahhhh I have arrived! I was featured on Mr. E's blog! You made my day!!!! Thanks Ted:) See you at the conference but there is one problem with your post. . . YOU DIDN'T ADD YOUR OTHER REASONS THAT People should not miss out on. Oh well guess they'll have to head over to my blog and read the comment section . . . had a "lost my tail" kind of moment (aka eeyore!) Thanks Mr. E for being a Tigger;)

  2. Sigh... I think I'm the only art teacher on the planet not involved in this, either as a presenter or as an attendee (and yes, I'd LOVE to see what Cassie will be wearing!), but as a retired person I just can't justify paying for professional development geared for the art teacher in a traditional school setting. In my after-school business, I don't have to think about assessment and data collection and all that jazz, and I like it that way. Though I do feel really 'out of the loop' on this!
