Okay, jealousy for junior high kids aside, here's the first video in the series. I encourage you to watch the entire series, and check out the other videos on the channel.

I'm really enjoying the videos posted by Lisa VanDamme on YouTube. She's one of the many people I follow as I develop my own thoughts on education. My particular favorite is the 8 part seres on the VanDamme Academy's art curriculum. I've never been much for 2 dimensional art. Oh it's pretty, but it doesn't get a rise out of me like dance or poetry or literature does. So watching this and going through the analysis of a painting rocked me a bit, in a toally awesome way. I really would love to go on a museum tour with Mr. Travers and learn how to pick apart a painting. Also, he's taking students to Paris this summer for an art tour. Oh, why not me?
