The following video is a review of a new resource developed by Classical Composers Monthly. It is a resource for teaching visual fine arts and I have to say, it is pretty easy.
My wife and I like to bake. I am more breads, pizza doughs, souffles and cookies. She is all about cake: 3 tiered cakes, cake pops, cupcakes (Cupcake Wars is a favorite show of hers), and muffins which is our justification for eating cake for breakfast. Not too long ago, she was making some form of cake for an event. Our daughter is learning her colors. I put the two together to come up with an amazing lesson. Not just for colors but for physics, chemistry, math, and the culinary arts.

Well, what can I say? Publishers sure know what they are doing. You know how publishers sometimes add quotes on the front cover from people who are recommending a book? Well, that usually doesn’t work on me but I have to admit that I fell for it this time. I went to the library a few weeks ago looking for books on creativity. “How to”s, philosophies, education, etc and found this book by Sir Ken Robinson in the computer. There was a small, one word quote on the cover in the picture of the computer that I couldn’t quite make out. I got the call number and went to the correct isle and found the book. On the front cover, I found the quote of “Brilliant” by none other than John Cleese. Now when John Cleese is recommending a book on creativity and education reform, I thought, “this is probably going to be worth my time”.
