New Watercolor Pinterest Page

I’m trying out a new use of Pinterest, one that I think will be helpful for quickly viewing all of a project category at once. Click above or on the new “Watercolor on Pinterest” Page Tab to check it out and let me know what you think. 
UPDATE: I’ve just added above an “Oil Pastel”, “Collage” and “Drawing” Tab with the same treatment. Thank you Pinterest for making this so easy to do!

I like the page. It is much easier to find the projects. I always have a hard time going through your website on my school computer...it runs so slow (i do most of my lesson writing at work and when I need a new idea, i check you out). The pinterest page is a lot faster for me for some reason. But it works.

My school does not allow pinterest. Please keep posting on your blog. I LOVE your ideas.

No worries, I'm not moving my site to Pinterest, just plan to use both to their full benefit.

EXCELLENT idea. This is so much easier and inspiring to see the whole category together visually.

Great idea! Thank you so much for all of the wonderful ideas, I would be lost teaching art to my Grade 3 class without your website!

Thanks for this idea, it is a great way to see everything. I have been pondering how to make all my posts easily viewed. It seems that the latest post is what catches others attention. I know they are missing out on so much more. I'm with Jennie Griffiths, our school blocks Pinterest. I'm working on changing that. Is it time consuming having two going, or have you got it sorted?

Hi Gretchen,
I had some glitches for a few days, but things are working now. You need to have two email addresses to set up two Pinterest accounts, and be sure to make two different passwords too. I made one account under my personal name, and the other with my blog name so I can easily tell the difference. It took time to pin all my posted content, but now it's easy to just add new items. I recommend it!

Hi Kathy, I follow all of your Pinterest boards and love all of your stuff!! Another idea (that I would personally love) is if you had boards that focused on certain age groups, for example an "Art Projects for 1st-2nd graders", "Art Projects for 3rd-4th graders, etc. That way, if people needed a project for certain grade levels, they could go to your page and know they have been tried! Thank you for all that you do! I'm not sure if you realize how inspiring you are to all of us art teachers out here. You are the guru! :-)
