I have been hearing this over and over from students and it has always bothered me. Today was the day that I decided to confront my students with this issue. I wanted to explain to them that it bothers me and even hurts my feelings when they use the term "skin color". I told them that if I was drawing my husband, I would choose a brown shade and if I were drawing my son I would choose a lighter shade.
The lesson I learned today... Why have I been letting students use this annoying term of "skin color" for so long when it takes just a minute to explain that what they are saying in wrong? Aaaahhhh! I feel much better now that I have confronted my students because I know that they will think twice next time they ask for a shade of beige or brown! HA!
In other news, I would like to say HELLO and WELCOME to my newest followers. I have noticed that my followers group has been increasing lately and it warms my heart to see that people are actually reading my blog! I hope you are all enjoying reading my posts and downloading my materials because I really am having a blast with this blogging adventure! :o)
Last week I changed my blog design. I had already created my blog button (you can read all about it and get a tutorial in a previous post) so I decided to make the rest of my blog design around that. I'd love to get some comments from you!
