Disney to Furlough Non-Union Park Employees in the US Starting April 19
This training was advertised as being more advanced techniques, so it seems to have scared away most of the participants who caused issues yesterday.
Good advice is being shared in a non-distracting manner.
I signed up for the very first session on the first day of training because...
1. I know how hard this stuff can be so I'm likely part of the more forgiving portion of the audience when it comes to learning curves for live video training.
2. I want to get it out of the way so I can spend the rest of my day on grading and lesson prep.
Mr. Emberley was an early inspiration for me. He provided tools that I could use in my classes to convince students that, yes, they COULD draw.

5. I am ALL FOR massive reform of Copyright, a concept that was created specifically to protect and encourage creative individuals.
Yes, it has been abused since then, but it still does its original job.
Maybe let it still do that instead of throwing it all away.
3. Those on top tend to stay there. An independent artist missing the tools to survive will sink. Corporations will just start stealing (more), because what's to stop them, now?
4. "We'll stop them," you might say. "We'll stop using their stuff." Well that's excellent in an ideal world Nestle's still afloat after saying you don't have a right to water so we don't live in a world where we get to see that work.
1. I know copyright is broken and abused. It needs reform.
2. It's also one of the few things that keeps independent artists from having their work taken out from under them. This is very prevalent in the photography genre but it happens elsewhere, too. Copyright suits are a tool that independent photographers NEED to keep publishers in check.
Childrens' Author Death
RIP Tomie dePaola, author of Strega Nona.
He e succumbed to complications from surgery after surviving a fall.
Nearing the end of the student work that needs to be graded.
My supervisor has organized several of the teachers who cover my content area (including me) to create lessons that can be done from home.
I'm told that every student will have access to a device. That device might only be a ChromeBook (unfortunately, based on our content area's use of non-browser-based software), but it's amazing what one can do with just a web browser these days.
For the first time in weeks, I feel hopeful.
