#ArtShirtFriday #ArtShirtFriday began when I started teaching at Oregon Elemen- tary School. I came across a cool van Gogh t-shirt online while I just happened to have been teaching a unit about the artist. I thought it was a fun way to show my students how passionate I am about art, and for them to see the great impact art has made on popular culture. At my school, teachers wear jeans on Fridays, typically with school spirit apparel, but no one seemed to mind when I started wearing a different art shirt each week. As my collection grew, a couple of my friends began implementing their own Art Shirt Fridays in their schools, and we used the hashtag to spread the word. Now, every Friday I log on to social media and enjoy seeing the dozens of art teachers across the country who are sharing a love for art with their students by participating in #ArtShirtFriday! —Jordan DeWilde @MrDeWildeArt S N A P S H O T S S N A P S H O T S
