Abstract painting with your feet. It's a hoot and best done out side, but might be out for covid depending on how you can structure clean up.


Hose would be better I just took out a bucket of soapy water and paper towels. If they wiped off some of the excess on grass you might be able to get away with wet wipes.


Too bad you don’t live in the Midwest with all the ciccada- you could do some natural sculptures!

What is your top favorite lesson? Mine would be one last year when I had to find the time to get into the classrooms and teach. I led a talk about the Harlem Renaissance and the kids made a jazz collage. It will be much easier with the art room back open.

Hey All. I had my 2nd round interviews for a Lead Solution Engineer role at Salesforce on Monday (2 days ago). It was w/ 2 separate SEs, and I thought both interviews went very well. Have yet to hear from the recruiter, though, which seems odd. Especially given how responsive the recruiter's been prior to this.

Is that normal? Do I just need to be patient or should I mentally prepare for a rejection? Thanks!
