If Only I Were as Fun as This Art Teacher

I came across this art teacher/musician online. Doesn't it just make you want to take art classes all day long? He makes up songs about art and artists. I've got one of the ditties already in my head . It's called "You Cezanne."

I say, "Ce", you say "zanne"
I say, "Ce," you say "zanne" ...

and then there's the Picasso Polka (featured in this video) which has the word "blue" so many times you'll never forget Picasso's Blue Period. I love the way the kids giggle during the "American Gothic" bit. Maybe I'll have the kids dress in blue (they love casual days), play the blues, and make a Picasso-inspired blue painting. Any suggestions for a blue project?

I'm gonna see what it'd take to book this dude at school. It's probably not in the budget, but a girl can dream, can't she?

Here's the clip: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pnz9bNGLPK4&feature=related Watch it and tell me if you can spot the math teachers. They can't dance.

I can still remember some great fun funky musical presentations that came to my school! Good stuff!
