Welcome

Welcome to everyone who is visiting my blog from Seth Apter's The Pulse.  I am shown there on the Sunday Style File post this week.



I would like to introduce myself to anyone who is new to my blog.  My name is Marcia Beckett and I am an elementary art teacher in Wisconsin. 


My other blog is dedicated to my art teaching career and is called  Vivid Layers.  On that blog,  I post all kinds of lesson plans and tips for teaching elementary school art.   Personally, I create lots of art in my free time.  I enjoy watercolor painting, doodling, lettering, acrylic painting and mixed media collage.  Here are a few samples of my artwork!  You can click on the links at the top of my blog to see other art I have made.

I hope you've enjoyed visiting seeing some of my artwork.  Please leave a comment!  I'm always interested in meeting new art friends.
