    I have enjoyed collaborating with Homeroom teachers at my school, discovering what they are teaching, and then blending those subjects and topics into my Visual Art lessons! This way students are getting a second chance to digest important knowledge and they get a deeper learning experience. When you get to CREATE or MAKE something using the prior knowledge, there is a whole new way of learning that happens.
    Thank you for your useful information.
