How do you teach art without a classroom?
Marianne Bickett had been teaching for over 35 years. She thought she’d done it all.
Enter: the magic art cart.
Soon, ordinary days are filled with laughter, tears, and magic as she shuttles a grey cart from classroom to classroom and watches it transform into a traveling children’s art gallery.
This memoir is a bounty of flair and color. Not only a story of discoveries and adventures at an elementary school, it also encompasses personal heartbreak, grief, simple joys, and the wonders of adopting a nearby creek to teach her students, and in turn herself, how to go with the flow.
The students become the teachers and the teacher becomes the student in this inspirational story of making and teaching art in unexpected circumstances.
Parents, teachers, and those interested in education get a glimpse into a world that enlightens and delights, a rare look into what flexibility and creativity it takes to be a teacher. This colorful and insightful memoir is an inspiration to rethink daunting problems into infinite possibilities.
