I'm in awe of anyone with the ability to draw. I can do a pretty good stick figure, and I learned how to make bubble letters in 7th grade, but I'm no artist. Many of my students are incredible artists, and some of them tell me all the time, "I can't draw!"
A couple years back, I met Carrie at my first EdCamp. She's a super cool special educator who digs tech. She's also realllly good at drawing and doodles. (Check out her website here!) Her enthusiasm inspires me!
In order to get better at something, you have to practice. (I tell my students and daughters that all the time.) So this month, I will be practicing a little bit of doodling myself!
I decided that I needed some new tools to practice drawing, so I bought a pad of plain white marker paper and a set of Sharpie pens. (Ooooohhh pretty colors!)
I'm not sure if I'll be brave enough to share my doodles, but I'm ready to put the pen to the page and see where it takes me!
Thanks, Carrie, for the inspiration to doodle, and thanks to all the Slicers for writing alongside me!
