Relax, recharge, exchange...
Nearly there. Who said summer was a quiet term?
Teachers of other subjects might have been on the wind down for a few weeks (that'll wind them back up!), but Art and Photography teachers are often busier than ever at this time. Still, what better way to celebrate the end of term than navigating your colleague's armpits whilst peppering away with a staple gun - all in interests of hanging the end-of-year exhibition of course. "Is that straight?" "Um, Nope."
No doubt it's worth it, even if a week or so later you still can't find the masking tape (kettle, technician...way out...). Such superhuman efforts at the end of a busy year are to be commended: Sharing and celebrating the Arts - perhaps now more than ever - is a GOOD THING.
With this in mind, why not share some student successes? Alternatively, if you've tried a lesson from our Photopedagogy resources, let us know what's worked well. Whatever your photography-related thoughts, we'd love to hear from you.
Talking of which, fancy a meet up? We have an exciting date for your diary: 6th February 2017.
Photopedagogy will be running a Tate Exchange event with students - for teachers, students and the wider public - in the new Switch House extension at the Tate Modern. It's all very exciting and we'd love you to join us. More to follow soon.
OK, enough. Summer holidays await! Enjoy a relaxing and well-deserved break.
