More art teacher sites - not necessarily TAB in focus, but sharing our emphasis on student-centered or hands-on learning

Art and Learning to Think and Feel http://www.goshen.edu/art/ed/art-ed-links.html
Art Student Blog http://barbsstudents.blogspot.com/
Art Makes Kids Smart http://artmakeskidssmart.blogspot.com/

Blogs take a lot of time so each of the "teacher blogs" is updated depending on that individual's schedule. I recommend setting them up on a RSS feed (making reading blogs with infrequent posts much easier than visiting them daily) or checking back regularly so you can share ideas. Have fun exploring!
